    Default A Simple Question about Plate Covers (Lasershield)

    If it's against the law to have a plate cover regardless of whether it's clear, tinted, or meant to suppress laser readings in a given state...

    ...and if someone has the Lasershield on their car and is hit with a laser gun and the LEO doesn't get a reading as normally expected, wouldn't that alert him to stop the car and find out why he couldn't get a reading like he can with most of the cars targeted...possibly resulting in a citation?

    Seems to me using Lasershield would put you in harm's way. How do people deal with this conundrum?

    Veil would also fall under scrutiny as well. Headlights have to be DOT approved to be legal. If you put a coating over your headlights (esp. veil which darkens them) you are modifying your headlights. Sometimes lidar will not get a reading on a plate so they are instructed to hit the lights next. If you get a build up of road grime and bugs your plate will not reflect well. I have laser shield and have not been questioned about it at all.

    this totally depends on the state where you live whether they have a law or not against plate covers
