Lately I've noticed a growing number of vehicles with their front license plates mounted off-center, like this:
I wonder if there is any advantage from a LIDAR-defense perspective to mounting the plate this way. Depending on where the LEO is standing relative to the car, it will rob him of his primary target. And even if the LEO is positioned correctly to bounce the beam off the plate, the reading will be lower due to the parallax error. And yet the front plate is still mounted in a legal fashion on the front bumper of the vehicle.
What do you think? If the car has jammers will mounting the plate in this manner help reduce the possibility of a PT? Or is its only value a stylistic one, like wearing your baseball cap sideways?
