I see shit like this everyday while driving around Reno. The NHP turns a blind eye to it, as well the local law enforcement. I can't help but think how hypocritical that is.

Hypocritical or not, if they were more consistent in applying the laws as they should that wouldn't affect you anyway; they'd just be burdening Reno residents more. What's more important is concentrating on problems where law enforcement is going "beyond the call of duty" to find excuses to pull over burners.

You mean having the man logo visible on your vehicle isn't probable cause to do a drug sweep?

That was my point.
I should point too that I do see some with those electric scooter/wheelchair "racks" that have had the rear license plate and light mounted on the rack or in another visible location.

Well, not legally... but I've gotta admit that if I were a cop trying to fill the coffers, I'd at least classify that as "probable-cause-to-find-some-excuse-for-legal-probable-cause."
