Pulled over; obstructed license plate

Had my Weathertech plate frame for 5 years now and my wife got pulled over tonight because it had hazed up so bad the patrolman said it was obstructing view.
Used some Flitz and an old sock to clean it up. So FYI.... If you have plastic that is hazed up hit it with some type of polishing compound and see if it cleans up.

Hell cant even have them in WI at all. Even if its crystal clear. Chances of actually getting a ticket for it? About >||< small. Hell even dealer license plate frames are technically a no-no if it covers the state name, month sticker and year sticker. Its amazing how a good heavy duty wax keeps a plate relatively clean.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

You cannot have any type of plate cover in Illinois either. Even if it is clear. I got pulled over for it last year but got a warning.

No guns on the kitchen table? A 50 caliber would make an awesome centerpiece.

Haha, no, sorry for the confusion. Flitz works well on crappy headlights too.

FL CCW's arent recognized here either. FL doesnt have enough training to use a FL permit in WI. And gonna go play with a full auto MP5K this weekend.

Thanks Greg!

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
