I was pulled over last month with my bike on my rear mounted bike rack. I know my bike obstructs the view of my plate underneath my bike.
Anyway, I was pulled over for not having current stickers. When he radio'ed in my plate number, they told him my car was legit. (seems someone left her stickers in the glovebox) Nice officer actually put them on my plates for me and said have a nice day!
If he had wanted to, I guess he could have been a prick but he didn't care about my bike at all.
Giant Excursion, Raleigh Sports, Raleigh R.S.W. Compact, Motobecane? and about 20 more! OMG

Yes but it is only an issue if they make it one. I see a multitude of vehicles running the interstates with those hitch mounted cargo racks...plates obscured. I suspect you are only going to get a ticket for that if you get one for something else...like 90+ in a 65...
