License plate lights.

Is it a law in TEXAS that our plates on our motorcycles have a light to luminate the plate?

how's he gonna know you have tickets? cuz of your tags? it doesn't work that way. he has to have a reason to pull you over. he did. he shoulda taken you to jail, yet he let you off lightly and you call him an .........

yeah ... he ran my tags and they are registerd to me... thus he knew i had warrents... and if your sayin a cop cant do that ive been driving my brothers car REGISTERD to him and he had warrents i got pulled over because of his warrents they ran my id and knew i was not him so they let me go.. i have been pulled over just for warrents before.. oh and also.. for another county to arest you they have to verify your warrents are still open. and precinct5 will not verify any warrents after5pm i was told that by a sugarland cop when i was pulled over ( he was tryin to arrest me) so i highly doubt i would have went to jail.
