Get Rid of Your License Plate Bracket

If you value your privacy, and if you wish to avoid being stopped at an inopportune time, then you should get rid of any license plate bracket which encroaches on any portion of the writing images on your license plate. Police have so many “reasons” to stop a vehicle, that you hardly need to give yet another. Police routinely stop vehicles, because the window tint is too dark, the license plate light is not working, driving too fast, driving too slow, etc. See Florida Statute 316.605.

There is a curious twist to the application of Section 316.605 for our friends whose vehicles are registered in another state. Section 316.605 only requires substantial compliance by such vehicles.  The term, “substantial compliance”, creates a potential loophole which might benefit those who drive and occupy vehicles licensed in another state or territory or foreign country.
