  • Rear licence plate flipper

    A balck box from the pervious owner was found my trunk during my LED installation.when i press the button on it the plate flipped 180 degrees. Are those legal to own? Not planing to use it since i EZPass its screwd in my front bumper. Don’t know what to do now. I live in DC but i travel a lot in MD and Va getting in troube is not what i am aming for.

    I don't believe they are legal for use in MD or DC (or many other states), I would just pull the wires or something.

      Amazing the lengths people will go to avoid paying a few bucks. Of course, tolls suck!

        Legal to own, illegal to use

            It is an offense here in Texas so it is probably the same in most or all states.
            Sec. 504.9465. LICENSE PLATE FLIPPER; OFFENSE. (a) In this section, "license plate flipper" means a manual, electronic, or mechanical device designed or adapted to be installed on a motor vehicle and:

            (1) switch between two or more license plates for the purpose of allowing a motor vehicle operator to change the license plate displayed on the operator's vehicle; or

            (2) hide a license plate from view by flipping the license plate so that the license plate number is not visible.

            (b) A person commits an offense if the person with criminal negligence purchases or possesses a license plate flipper. An offense under this subsection is a Class B misdemeanor.

            (c) A person commits an offense if the person with criminal negligence manufactures, sells, offers to sell, or otherwise distributes a license plate flipper. An offense under this subsection is a Class A misdemeanor.
