NYPD Arrests Cyclist for Uncovering Obscured License Plate, Lets Driver Go

Only in NYC.
Hell Gate reports that cyclist Adam White, who is also a lawyer, saw the piece of plastic covering a letter of the license plate on this Chevy Suburban and pulled it off. Generally speaking, you should leave other people’s cars alone. But when they illegally cover their license plate so they can avoid tolls, evade red-light cameras and speed cameras, and generally put others at risk, we say go for it.

This presumably City employee had a City placard he hid when I snapped off this obstruction. Illegal tint and removable emergency light @defacedplateNYC @placardabuse @NYCMayor pic.twitter.com/QV6Sb1vDa4— adam white (@adamlaw50) August 5, 2022
