Changes to Obscured License Plate Violations
Jul 22 2023

HB 2195 makes it an offense to attach or display a vehicle a license plate that has a coating, covering, protective substance, or other material that alters or obscures the letters, numbers, or color of the license plate. The punishment for obscuring a license plate is a maximum $300 fine unless the driver has a previous conviction, in which case it is a maximum $600 fine. Two or more convictions elevate it to a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a maximum $2,000 fine.
