Someone would have to have access to a police computer to run your plate number to find out any info. It is unlawful for a police officer to willing give out that info.


Why they block it out I don't have any idea

I agree too. Police officers have to keep any kind of information like that confidential and do not reveal it to the public. No one cares about a bunch of letters and numbers that they will forget about anyways. It doesn't matter if you block it out or not.

Some people think that someone online will take their plate number, get their address from it, and come to their house and kick their ass for being a douche online. My answer to that, don't be a douche.

The people that block their plates also wear tinfoil hats and go around telling everybody that the CIA has brain probes in everybodies heads.

Some people do it so that someone cant put a new number on their license plate like photo shop and try to sell their vehicle. Some people are stupid like that and would do something like that. I dont car personally cause my truck isnt worth millions it is to me but not to a whole lot of other people lol But if your like every other paranoid person go a head and block it out

There are a lot of states you can go to the dmv and give them the plate number and they will give you the info. Some states require you provide a reason, ie. such as an accident, before they'll provide the info. Not all states are the same.
