The automobile plate above reads as :
NOT FOR HIRE
In accordance to the California Court of Appeals: Government Employees Insurance Co vs Carrier Ins. Co 1975 Cal. App. 3D 223
Notice to individuals or govt. agencies; owner of record reg. @ http://freeinhabitant.info/?p=64
My friends have driven with such plates as above for years with no (little) intervention from the California Police. Police pull up behind my friends, read the notice, they turn left and the cops turn right. California is one of the few states that have clear right to travel language in their codes.
