5 Guaranteed Ways That Will Get You Ticketed In Montana
With summer upon us and people traveling more, let's take a look on how to keep you out of trouble and avoid getting a ticket.
Dirty License Plates
With as many miles that are highway roads in Montana there are just as many miles of dirt roads as well.
That means your license plate could easily be caked in dust and dirt and not allow the cop to read your license plate number, and that would give them a reason to pull you over and ticket you.
Make sure during the winter months to clear your plate of built up snow for the same reason.
License plate light burnt out
Okay, so your car is clean and you plate is readable during the day, but what about at night?
If the light that allows cops to see your plate number and tag is burnt out, it's just another reason that you could be pulled over in Montana.
Speaking of tags.
Outdated tags or no tags at all
If your tag is missing or is outdated you are definitely going to be pulled over and ticketed.
Just a heads up, there are people that will come and steal your tags. To prevent this take a utility knife and cut an x into it.
Front plates and rear plates
In Montana it is illegal to drive without front plates,
All motor vehicles must have one license plate displayed on the front and one license plate displayed on the rear of the motor vehicle.
License plate frames
Our fifth and final reason is one we've talked about before. Having a license plate frame that hinders in any way the cops ability to see your plate number or tags will result in you being pulled over.
By making sure you're following these 5 simple guidelines you'll reduce your chances of being pulled over when traveling under the Big Sky.
