It's true.

When it comes to police, he could say I am giving you a ticket because your inspection sticker is too shiney and it was reflecting the sunlight making me unable to see it.

I was talking about actual law.

and you put the little smiley next to it which was indicative that you weren't talking about actual law in a serious manner at all. point is, just put the where you KNOW its supposed to go, instead of and moaning when you get popped, whining "well near is loosely defined", because when you pull that stunt youre only doing it intentionally to provoke authority. there is absolutely no reason - not one - to NOT post your sticker where it should be. use common sense and you wont have any issues.

Dunno who peed in your cornflakes, but there are lots of reasons why someone may want to relocate their inspection sticker. And I was merely stating that "near" is a relative legal term without clear definition and does not mean it must be within X inches of the license plate.

On a personal note, I keep mine directly beneath or beside the license plate on a side plate because its not worth it for me to deal with the hassle.

???? never said anyone SHOULD break the law, but the law is vague, and does not even require that the sticker be visible from the rear only that it be attached to the rear, near the license plate. I'm just trying to inform people that the legalities are vague enough to give them options if they dislike a stock position.

Just like your aftermarket exhaust potentially causes you the hassle of fighting in court.

Never said it wouldn't. Merely stated it gives you a defense. As motorcyclists I doubt a single person on this website rides in a way that they NEVER violates the vagueness of law in order to satisfy their own personal desires.

Relocating an inspection sticker, is no different than using aftermarket exhaust, accelerating quickly from a stop, or even taking one of your two-hands off the handlebars, in my opinion.

I'm not advocating moving the sticker, nor am I preaching about the law. I was merely interpreting what was posted for people who might be interested.

I assume this is related to my exhaust comment, but whether or not you want to believe it. Yes a cop could write you a ticket for that exhaust, given the previous cases and situations that have arisen you might and probably would win. But it would be a hassle in court, no different than relocating an inspection sticker.

and i assume you have some kind of point to this incoherent babble. there is one cop in one area of houston that harasses people illegally. so you know what i do? i stay away from that part of houston. i dont go there and provoke confrontation with law enforcement to prove something to some uber cool mad tyte squids hanging out at pp1.

so no, it poses me no threat what so ever. youre giving poor advice. accept it.

If everything i am saying is "incoherent babble" then really there's no point in talking to you. I've been as clear, concise, and polite as is humanly possible. And you're just in a foul mood and feel like all over someone else's statements for no reason.

So I'm done. People who are interested can already see what I said.
