Dirty License Plates
Mon July 30, 2012
State police watching for dirty license plates
Louisiana state police and local law enforcement agencies are telling motorists to clean off their dirty license plates.
State police say in a news release the motorists caught with their license plates obscured in any way, including by dirt, mud or frames that cover part of the plate, could be ticketed.
Louisiana law requires vehicle license plates be clearly displayed, as well as illuminated at night by license plate lights.
Col. Michael Edmonson, state police superintendent, says clean license plates can help citizens more easily report reckless or impaired drivers, as well as vehicles involved in criminal acts.
