Best Answer

No. An officer needs PC (probable cause), which could be a car fitting your description that was stolen... or it could be that you have too much hanging from your center mirror (obstruction of sight) or overload rearend.

Is a smoke colored license plate cover illegal in kansas?

Actually, smoke colored license plate covers are illegal in every state in the U.S. The reason is because every state has made it legal for certain equipment to be able to scan the license plate and the smoke colored covers block the equipment from scanning the plate. Due to this, the smoke colored covers are illegal. Just because you have not been stopped by a cop or forced to remove one, does not mean that it is legal in your state. In other words, take the cover off and if you are going to court on one in your state, then that answers your question..Added: Also, since ALL states have distinctive license plates insofar as recognizable colors, graphics, and artwork are concerned, license plate covers of ANY color are prohibited, except clear of course.
