You got a tix because it is illegal to have a cover (tinted)over your plate, Period.
Licence Plate Covers Not Permitted
Monday July 17, 2006
You may not know the tinted licence plate cover that adorns your vehicle is illegal, but ignorance of the law is no excuse, even on something so seemingly insignificant.
Rob Robinson is just one of thousands that uses a cover, and he was as shocked as any when he was stopped by police one afternoon.
"I told him I wasn't speeding and he said, 'I know ... we can't see your plate,'" recalls Robinson.
