My daughter was pulled over today for having a dealers license plate frame on her car 2017nJetta. The kind that are on millions of cars. When she asked why she was pulled over the police officer said for the frame. I have never heard of this. I have heard of cops writing these kind of tickets when a more serious infraction occurred to give the person a "break" but this is the reason she was pulled over. She is in NJ car registered at my house also in NJ in about 50 miles away. He also questioned why her license isnt at school. She is a full time college student who rent an apartment during the schoolyear. Debating if I should fight it.

Yes please. Unless NJ just passed a law making license plate frames illegal, THAT ticket is bee ess and will get thrown out of court. Don't give NJ cop an easy and illegal victory.

She said she will take a picture tommorrow she was tired and in for the night when i got the call, not sure how to post I am not too computer savy. If you look at license plate frame on this car it should be the same. We bought it from this dealer, it is picure next to last one

I would call the dealer and ask if they have ever heard of this.

they will pull you over where I live if the frame blocks too much of the plate ... so I ditch them when my new plates come in (taking off the paper plate) and put some slim versions on from AZ

they also do it with the aftermarket backup camera frames ...

The cop decided that he wanted to pull her over, as she must have done something to spark his curiosity. Perhaps he was hoping to get a DWI or a stronger ticket. However they need some clear reason to do so, and "obscured license tag" is a common reason. Not so much that it was a dealer frame, but rather that it provided the basis to pull her over if there was no clear cut probable cause. NJ is not the only state that allows this b.s. reason. I assume that NJ has the similar laws as my state, in which case you could fight it if you feel its worth your time.

Yep... while technically illegal (not sure about your location) here I ran a big “HOONIVERSE” frame that said “STOP THE HATE GET A V8” along the bottom that totally obscured Indiana’s County code in the bottom right and most of the “INDIANA” at the top center of the plate. Never had an issue when I got pulled over. I’d fight it.

Lots of tickets aren't for real their just about revenue. They know lots of people are going to pay a lawyer a thousand dollars to fight a $125 ticket.
