Sounds like a BS law.  Sounds like the state legislature and certainly the 
various police forces have lots better to do than to look for clear license 
plate covers.  (Of course that makes sense coming from California.)

In our state we had a new law that you couldn't cover up any significant part 
of the license plate.  As the story goes one of the state legislators was in a 
courtroom when a trial came in for one of these offenses.  The testifying 
police office said that part of the "J" (or whatever letter it was) was 
obscured.  The judge asked "well if part of it was obscured then how did you 
know it was a "J" ?"  I think of the newspapers that was reporting on this 
walked through the restricted parking lot at the state capitol where the 
legislators parked and counted about 50% of the cars that had illegal license 
plate covers.  The law was soon changed.
