Default Been seeing more and more of these plates

Is this some kind of tiktok trend? I've been seeing a lot more license plates with what looks like they sanded off the paint from some of the characters, others look like they've been caked on with toilet paper paper mache, we don't have any camera tollways anywhere near here, I don't understand the point.
Surely this kind of stuff would only draw more police attention, right?

Probably some stupid trend that hopefully will get them ticketed as itís illegal to mod your plate.

A guess but would that not allow a license plate reader to get the info?

In Tejas, that license plate frame itself is illegal, even though half the cars here have the same kind of thing. You can't have a frame that obscures ANY markings on the plate. So even if the number and state is fully visible, most Texas plates have "the Lone Star state" embossed on the bottom, and most of the time, at least part of that wording is obscured by this type of frame....illegal, and an easy pretext stop reason for any cop who wants to stop you.

No idea about the strange look of the lettering....never seen that before. If you're trying to obscure the number, just put a paper plate on....it's the Texas way. We're apparently the national leader in fake paper plates nationwide.

This is very common in Michigan plates, especially the white and blue base plate for some reason, I'd imagine it has something to do with road salt

Certainly probable cause to be pulled over. Same thing with those smoked plastic covers.

That is a Wisconsin plate, the laminate or paint does not bond to the tin at all. Very common for that layer to be blown off by a car wash. The convicts making the plates have lower quality just like every other industry in bidens world.😁

Looks like the aluminum is a sacrificial anode for the steel in the car. One more reason why I moved to The South.
