    is anyone familiar with state specific rules re: lettering size? we have a prospect client who indicated their current vehicles (partial wrap with spot lettering) were pulled over by state troopers in NY for "their lettering being too large"!?

    usually its to the discretion of the trooper...

    Here in cali, my girlfriends boss called CHP to see if it was legal to drive while drinking no-alcoholic beer, and got both answers (yes and no) from the same precinct (receptionist, manager, chief, etc...) they pretty much said that it is up to the trooper

    Never heard of that one, but I guess FedEx, Sears and some of the other big guys better rethink their artwork.

    call the NY state police and ask them where to find the info since they were the ones who pulled this guy over, they should know where to find the law so you can see what it says. seems like if there is a law with requirements, it wouldn't be hard to find as people would need the info to comply.

    If I were an officer I would arrest anyone drinking a non-alcoholic beer. For being insane, not DUI.

    I've only heard of tickets being written for too small, as in DOT numbers on commercial rigs.

    Sounds like a case of "revenue enhancement"!

    Good point! If FedEx is allowed just about anything should be.
