drivers face fines for obscuring Chandler Jones Patriots Jersey license plates

Beginning Wednesday, any vehicle owner whose license plate frame covers up any wording or stickers could face a fine. Chandler Jones Jersey

The General Assembly passed the law last year to make sure numbers, letters, the state name and the number and month on the registration renewal sticker can be seen.

"It has been a year. We have Danny Amendola Jersey not issued any citations for this violation up to this point. We've given verbal warnings or written warnings," said Sgt. Jeff Gordon, spokesman for the state Highway Patrol.

Violators can be penalized up to $100, but Gordon said troopers can use discretion to decide whether a plate frame is illegal. The law applies only to vehicles registered in North Carolina.

State Sen. Malcolm Graham, D Mecklenburg, said he plans to take the frame off his license plate before Wednesday after a WRAL News crew found the frame obscured the state name on the plate of his BMW, which was parked outside the Legislative Building.

But George Outlaw said he doesn't know why he needs to remove his license plate frame, which he says adds "pizazz" to his pickup.

License plate cover? Drivers could face fine

"I don't see where it's actually a problem because it's Dont'a Hightower Patriots Jersey not covering up the whole state," Outlaw said.

Gordon said many states use the same red, white and blue color scheme that North Carolina uses on their license plates, so it's harder for law enforcement officers to obtain registration information if they can't see the state name.

"A lot of times, if you can't see the state or the year and the month. Then, what we'll find a lot of times is people sometimes hide that because either they have a lapse in insurance or their tags are fictitious. So, it becomes an officer safety issue," he said.

"As you get your tag, as it comes off the production line, put it on the vehicle just as it is," Authentic Danny Amendola Jersey he said.

"I think Authentic Dont'a Hightower Jersey I'll probably just have to take (the frame) off and make it legal," Outlaw said.

I am all for law enforcement being able to identify with certainty the validity of a North Carolina license plate. However, this new law is radical. My tag frame covers partially the words North Caroina. First in Flight, my stickers, and every other aspect of my license plate is in full view. There is no way my license plate cannot be identified as a valid North Carolina license plate. Why can I be allowed to exhibit my school pride at the sacrifice of 1/2 of the words North Carolina? Surely law enforcement officers have common sense. Don they?
