Digital (fake-able) license plates finally hit the road in California

Here's a great way to fake out those cops chasing you.  or to avoid getting parking tickets.  A fake-able digital license plate.  App optional.

Perfect for those who want to drive an Uber with any car they want.

The argument is weak though.  My explanation is much cooler and applicable:

"Motorists who choose to buy the digital plates can register their vehicles electronically and eliminate the need to physically stick tags on their license plates each year, which could save the state money. The digital plates come with their own computer chips, batteries, and wireless communication systems. They also may be able to display personal messages — if the DMV decides to allow that."

    Yeah, as the OP says, this is a real bad idea. It's just a matter of time someone hacks it.

        Why limit yourself there?  It's an LCD, you can do wathever you want.

        A pic of the middle finger will better get the word across
