In CA, according to the one CHP officer I talked with about this subject, She says if you put it on the camper; "It is a reason to pull you over" if you put it on the pickup and I can not easily see it ," it is a reason to pull you over". My response was, well that is why I am talking to you now, so you don't have a reason to pull me over, she just shrugged her shoulders and said "its a reason to pull you over" she did qualify it with, if you are older its you and your wife, and there is no apparent other reason to stop you, she wouldn't pull us over.
I did not have that warm fuzzy feeling with that conversation.


Because she is the only CHP officer on patrol, ever, and she will remember this conversation?

Oh, and what did she suggest you do in this no-win, catch-22 situation?


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

Just getting back to this thread... The CHP officer was very non specific about any part of the question that I posed to her. Basically I got the feeling that she really didn't know the "Answer" and giving me the "its a reason to pull you over" sounded like a "go to " response. I have always believed if ANY LEO wanted to pull you over, there are probably a 100 reasons, and the whole license plate thing is just reason 101. I just make it a practice to cover my bases and not give any LEO an obvious reason to pull me over. I have been taught over my MANY years respect the badge and its authority. I don't go out of. my way to draw attention to my self in respect to LEO. I get that their job is not one I would like or even equipped to do, and my hat is off to the 99% but I have met one or two who take their authority to the next level.

Reading this thread, I was thinking great, just leave my tag on my Truck and never again drive it without a tag (like I seem to do often). Then I read one post about toll cameras.

How does it work when the camera cannot see your tag under the camper?

They hunt you down, drag you out of the truck, and beat you with nightsticks?

Seriously, I believe that they take pictures front and back as you go through the toll arch. They have to deal with tractor trailers, where the trailer plate does not necessarily belong to the driver, so the only way to get a plate number is the front of the vehicle.

If you've got a front hitch with a bunch of junk on a carrier, I suppose they just default back to pulling you over and giving you a good beatdown...

Florida only has one plate and it must be attached to the rear of the vehicle and visible at all times. On a big rig the plate is on the front of the truck with no plate on the rear of the truck. The traffic cameras must be able to read your plate.

Well, the one experience I had with that situation (unintentionally, I’ll add) I’d say that’s a scenario the system designers either didn’t anticipate, or don’t care enough about to fix.

What I was expecting was to get a bill in the mail for the toll, plus a service charge.

What happened was……..nothing. [emoticon]
