Being a former trooper in Virginia....no...we dont just stop out of state people who cant fight it....remember...nothing is illegal unless you get caught at it...just take it down when driving off the campgrd property and put it back on when you arrive back....it is a safety hazard!
X2 from retired Illinois Trooper. But I might add that I never actually wrote anyone a citation for "obstructed Driver's view". I stopped and warned a bunch over the years. I used it as one of those excuses to stop someone when they were at the wrong place at the wrong time or something just didn't seem right. IMHO a cop would have to be a total idiot to stop a regular law abiding citizen and actually give them a traffic citation for such a violation.
And an awful busy idiot at that. You see those placards everywhere. Of course he could probably bring in a lot of revenue.

Most states have laws about the obstruction of the windshield and most states have laws that people never knew existed. My state has a law the tells you how high the handlebars of a m/c can be from the seat once the seat is depressed from someone sitting on it. Not many know that one is on the books. But it's there for a safety factor just as the obstruction of a windshield is there for that same reason. I never gave a ticket out for the obstruction of a windshield but had plenty of chances to do so. But if the obstruction was really bad I would give a verbal warning and explain the law and have the driver remove the obstruction before I let him drive on. In order to avoid any problems with the law I suggest you just remove the item before getting on the road.
