Is showing your liscense plate that big of a deal?

Post by 03ranger30 on Wed Jun 15, 2011 2:40 pm

I always see people blur out their plates when they post pictures on the internet. Is it a bad idea to show it because I can't really see how it is.

One of the reasons people do this is because their car isn't 100% street legal. For example, I am running illegal tint on mine.

some people are running with no catalytic converters, which is illegal in the DC Metro area, for emmissions standards, noise ordinances...

by exposing their tags there is the possibility that you could be traced by your tags and receive an infraction.

The problem is the internet.... You can get any information now to include your address by a plate. Not a good idea coming from a ofc. It is amazing what can be done now by internet and by cell phone.

Ya but anyone can walk down the street and get tag #'s, so I don't worry bout it too much, now if I do a sig for someone I blank it out, cause they might not want it on the Internet, but with Facebook and Twitter and Myspace, there are bigger privacy issues to worry about.

BTW im pretty sure they cannot give you a infraction becouse of a picture. There would be too many hoops to jump through to probe that the pic is real and where and when it was taken and crap like that. PPL do it becouse if there is a vid of them doing something really illegal and there plate is visible plus they have it shown on forums they are the owner then they could get raped

It all started back in the late 90s. People were posting pics of their nice cars to include what was under the hood, their track times, how much money was invested, etc... They were posting these pics with the license plates visible. Well, "professional" theives and chop shops started lurking forums checking these cars out. They would then go out and find them, confirm the car by the license plate, and steal it. Alot of classic and irreplaceable cars worth 6 figures got stolen that way. Since then, people have started covering their license plates so these crooks couldn't match the car.

That's the reason also that alot of forums only show their multimedia section to registered members. It's so thieves can't come on the site and "scout". They would have to be a registered member first thus locking in some information on them.
