  • I was riding with a group of friends and we got pulled over because he had like a chain link liscense plate cover around the outside.They searched us for whatever reason, which had nothing to do with the liscense plate, but yeah it happened.

  • the say that at night it can cause a glare that would make it hard for them to read the plate

  • any cover that obscures ANY PART of the plate in Texas is illegal. My son thought is was B.S..and he had one on. Got pulled over 150 bucks later. That was a lot of money for a juinor working at a fish restaurant

  • Have a friend who had one that had lights around the outside. Apparently you can only have certain colors here (so they say) and she got a ticket for it. I know several are illegal and most states because they obscure the license plate in some way.
