Read the CFR Bumper Requirement....look at this.

(c) Protective criteria. (1) Each lamp or
reflective device except license plate
shall be free of cracks and shall
comply with applicable visibility requirements
of S5.3.1.1 of Standard No.
108 ( 571.108 of this chapter).

Obviously, the license plate lamp is exempted. So if there is to be no illumination, what is the purpose of having a plate on the vehicle, especially at night?

I guess I need to go to law school....naahhhh, then someone could call me a lawyer.
