So, I just discovered that vertically mounted plates are technically illegal in MD, where my bike is registered. I was planning on a vertical side mount.:frown2: But I am wondering how much the law is enforced. Anyone running a vertical plate in a state where it's not legal (MD or otherwise)? Or any anecdotal evidence for enforcement or non-enforcement..? I know of course I could do a horizontal side mount, but it's not quite the same. Thanks.
