im fighting a ticket on tuesday for an improperly mounted license plate. ive
searched the forums and googled it, but didnt find the right info. if anybody
knows what the bylaw website is please post it. thanks
just as a quick reference....tell us how your plate was mounted and someone will probably be able to relate to your story
Or you can look at his pictures
plate angled up, bad
plate mounted further in than back edge of tire, bad.
if the cop was giving you a ticket for the plate, surprised he didn't give you a ticket for no fender, and aftermarket signals.
If the reason he pulled you over was that he couldn't read your plate how is this winnable?Plates to be unobstructed
3.03 A number plate must be kept entirely unobstructed and free from dirt or foreign material, so that the numbers and letters on it may be plainly seen and read at all times and so that the numbers and letters may be accurately photographed using a speed monitoring device or traffic light safety device prescribed under section 83.1 of the Act.
[en. B.C. Reg. 185/96, s. 1; am. B.C. Reg. 215/99, App. 1, s. 1.]
Put your plate on a stock 600 rr take a picture of it and bring it with you.
speaking of regulations, where can I pick up a booklet or is it on ICBC website that I didn't see of road regulations?

Plus you have to prove that the plate was mounted correctly at the time of the ticket, not how it is now.
Sigh. Another day on BCSB, another doofus gets his *ss nailed while breaking the law and now wants to know how to weasel out of the ticket. Nothing new here, keep it moving.

unfortunately spike, its his right to do so.
Forgive my ignorance, but how is the way the plate is mounted deemed as illegal? It's clear to read from behind and the plate is horizontal and unobstructed from behind.
its angled up rather high, and would be hard to read flat on. the plate has to be pretty much perpendicular to the road.
