I got pulled over by one of "Illinois' finest" the other night, for no license plate light. He then informed me I needed to remove my trailer ball hitch from my truck because it "makes your (license) plate a little hard to read". Now, I live in farming country and purt near every darn truck has a ball on the bumper. They could have a real hay day handing out tickets for bumper hitch balls in this county LOL. Is this even really a law?
