i think the law is such b.*. i was driving in my small hometown last week and saw a state patrol car parked outside of his house. yep thats right ...NO front license plate. could he technically give you a ticket if he was breaking the law also?
You should know by now that Cops are above the law and don't have to abide by them since they are the only ones that enforce it.
I got stopped once for not having one. I must have passed this Cop when he was off duty,
cuz he waited for me to leave work one afternoon and stopped me just as I was leaving the lot. Gave me a warning to put it on within 48 hours or a fine would be imposed. I had to bring it in to the cop shop to have them view it was back on. When I showed up 48 hours later at the cop shop and asked them to check that it was now back on, he told me he trusted I had it on, since he didn't want to interupt his donut break. He didn't think I would be there if it wasn't on so he didn't have to go out into the lot to check.
