    Make sure to state that it is illegal to block your license plate with these things. Your plate must be visible or you can be stopped and fined. In PA plates are only on the rear of a vehicle and must be relocated if not visible. The picture in this article is setting you up for a fine as empty it is obstructing the plate! I have seen people block their plates and taillights when they load these things up! Not to mention weight capacity. Give people an opportunity to be stupid, and they will not dissapoint you. Some people use these to replace a trailer and load them up beyond belief.
