The Dangers of Using License Plate Covers to Evade Identification

License plate covers are a popular accessory for many drivers, but did you know that they can be illegal and pose a serious threat to public safety? Covering your license plate with a dark or reflective material can make it difficult for law enforcement officials to identify the vehicle and its owner, making it easier to evade prosecution and escape justice. In this blog post, we'll explore the dangers of using license plate covers and why they should be avoided.

Hit and Run Accidents

Hit and run accidents are a serious offense that can result in injury or death. If a driver hits a pedestrian, another vehicle, or property and tries to flee the scene, the license plate can be used to identify the driver. However, covering the plate with a license plate cover makes it difficult to identify the driver, thus making it easier to escape prosecution. This not only puts the driver at risk of being charged with a hit and run, but it also puts the public at risk of further harm.

Traffic Violations

Traffic violations such as speeding, running red lights or stop signs, and parking violations can all result in fines or other penalties. However, a driver who covers their license plate can easily avoid getting a ticket by making it difficult for law enforcement officials to identify the vehicle and its owner. This not only undermines the rule of law but also puts other drivers and pedestrians at risk by allowing reckless drivers to go unpunished.


License plates can be used to identify stolen vehicles. If the license plate is covered, it becomes more difficult to identify the stolen vehicle. This makes it easier for thieves to get away with stealing a vehicle, and it also puts the public at risk if the stolen vehicle is involved in a crime or accident.

Surveillance and Investigation

Police officers and other law enforcement officials often rely on license plate numbers to track suspects or investigate crimes. Covering the license plate can make it difficult to track or investigate suspects, making it easier for criminals to avoid detection and escape justice. This puts the public at risk by allowing criminals to go unpunished and continue to commit crimes.


Covering your license plate with a cover may seem harmless, but it poses a serious threat to public safety and undermines the rule of law. Hit and run accidents, traffic violations, theft, and surveillance and investigation are just a few of the crimes that can be made easier to escape by covering your license plate. To ensure public safety and maintain the rule of law, it is important that drivers refrain from using license plate covers and that law enforcement officials enforce the laws against them. By doing so, we can all help make our roads safer and prevent criminals from escaping justice.
