No License Plates? Unmarked Vehicle Still a WSP Car

The in basket: Darrell Hogue on Tuesday e-mailed to say “I saw a white State Patrol car this evening coming from Banger, then exiting at the Mall exit, head over the hill to east Bremerton. This car had NO PLATES on the front or back. I thought all cars had to have a license but the State Patrol cars would have exempt listed on their plates. Is this something new?
On Thursday, it was spotted again. Charles Jacobsen e-mailed that at 6:20 p.m. that day “I saw what looked like a white, unmarked Ford police car parked on the side of the road. eastbound in the S curve on Luoto Road before it’s intersection with Viking Way. It had emergency equipment in the rear window (police lightbar), but no license plates on either the front or rear. The area on both bumpers where the plates should have been was blank, mat black. No visible plates raises several legal questions should this vehicle attempt to make a traffic stop.”

The out basket: It is indeed their car, said Trooper Brian George of the State Patrol in Bremerton. It was on loan from the state fleet and the troopers who use it were supposed to see that it had plates, but hadn’t. Brian said he expected the problems to be corrected by the end of that day, which was Friday.

  1. I saw a Nissan Sentra with a bright yellow rear plate in the state of Ohio. The plate had no state or government designation at all. Just a plain yellow plate with black numbers. What kind of plate could this be?
