Re: License Plate cover

yeah it was def a meter maid...and they are nothing nice prolly b/c they know that they are not real cops and will get you whenever they can!

Thanks for the support and info guys...I guess its pretty clear that the majority of states do not allow covers so just another thing for us Jeepers to keep in mind!

I just think it is so whack to not be able to have a clear cover on it...I do get why, but it is still whack!!

The covers I have can be read if you are directly behind me, but if you are to the left or right of me (like the cameras would be) you can read half of the plate number, but the other have is blurred. This has saved me a ton of $$.
I get pulled over about once a year by a real cop. They give me a choice of taking the covers off immediately or being issued a ticket. I take the cover off & put it back on when I get home. So far so good. Good luck with yours.
they tried all of those camera blocking covers out on mythbusters and none of them worked at all

Re: License Plate cover

joe, even though they are a meter maid- they are still considered officials**
so in turn for example if you hit them, thats 7 yrs in jail. same as hitting an actual cop.

trust me i know, i had a douche bag hit me with a ticket while sitting in my car, was digging in my glove box getting my ezpass out- and look up i was already scanned for a the ticket......
(needless to say it escalated to a scene) because while seesawing back and fourth of how im in the phucking car, the car is running, i have my lights on. etc and you still give me a ticket assho!e?!!?! he responds back but got in my face while i was in the car...so obviously me be stubborn as i am, i winged the door open got out, grabbed his jacket and was about to whale on his face until my brother stepped in and calmed me down.
"once they scan your bar code" on you windshield- its a wrap- meaning, even if you leave with out the ticket- itll get mailed to you. only * only* only* if they scanned it. if they didnt scan it and you left the scene- then your good to go.

i was in the wrong, but still how you gonna give someone a ticket when theyre in the car, the car is running, lights is on, hell i even got m seat belt on and i ****ing ticket- this is why people in nyc hate meter maids- for this one example is enough to know why these jerk offs are simply that...jerk offs in my book.

eh sort of a rant but i had to drop my story as the reasoning to the bar code.

Re: License Plate cover

Atilla I know thats the law bro. LOL Same thing goes for MTA bus drivers and subway booth employees, you hit them it is a felony. Before it wasnt a felony and they were getting their ass kicked left and right. Pops told me stories of how he'd seen them get their asses kicked for giving a ticket. LOL

Exactly, if they scan the bar code you are done. Even if they wanted to (yeah right) they cant reverse the ticket.

Re: License Plate cover

he tried, but there was a lot of people on the scene, people saw the whole thing. he was in the wrong. he knew that but couldnt justify himself so he was back peddling.

i first got out and grabbed his jacket cause he wouldnt show me his badge number when i asked and told him i was going to report him.*** so thats when i just grabbed his jacket to see the badge numbers, he was resisting so i was about to hit him out of rage- thats when my brother pulled me back and talked to the meter maid and i just left the scene.

i still see this guy time to time, id run him over if nobody was looking- lol...im serious.
