Texas law states that if it is "mounted and easily visible from the front" its okay. Suction cups ftw!

I had heard that had changed just recently. Windshield was supposedly no longer ok. A friend of mine with a Honda got ticketed for it when he was caught speeding 2wks ago. Now i wanna find out for sure.

I could be wrong, but as I understand things, the language of the law is still kinda vague. It's something like "...affixed to the front and center of the vehicle...", or something to that effect. I have had Mine in the center of My windshield for about a year and have had plenty of opportunities to get busted for it(including an accident I was in last year), without incident. My luck, I'll get popped for it tonight, lol.

What i had heard had it changing from "visible from the front" to" attached to front bumper". It could have been a local ordinance but i think it was state. I know i had clear covers over my bumper mounted plates and a Harris county constable pulled me over cuz the glare from his headlights madeit so he couldn't readily read my plate. Luckily no ticket. Knock on wood for ya getting NO ticket if it is true.

Well, my personal experience so far is that I have driven directly in front of or within sight of police with my plate in the windshield (both with and without my euro plate on). haven't had anything yet.

A state trooper (meaning this is state-wide) pulled me over for it not being on the bumper. He gave me a warning, and now it is on the bumper again. oh well.

Im getting new ones today and I don’t think I'm putting it at all, I haven't used one for the past year and a half without a problem.
my brother got pulled over, but once the cop saw it was on the windshield he let him go
