The new state law requiring number plate frames to keep off the "Arizona" at the top of the plate could soon be revised.
A bill in the state Legislature would soften the law and the associated penalty.
As it sits, a number plate frame imposing on this stateís name is reason enough for an officer to pull over a vehicle. Then, once pulled over, fines could reach past $95.
But the bill would make any frame covering this stateís name (out-of-state number plates are still exempt) a secondary offense. That means you could get pulled over for speeding, and then cited for the frame and the speeding. You couldnít get pulled over solely for the frame.
Right now, the frame covering part of the state name is reason enough to be pulled over.
The bill would also drop a first-time offense to $45. Second-time offenders within a one-year period would pay $95.
Donít forget, though, itís still illegal to have a plate cover which makes your number plates illegible.
The language requiring that hasnít changed: "A person shall maintain all number plates are clearly legible".
