It depends on the laws of your home State. Most States however do have restrictions on the display of license plates. These displays coincide with safety. If you were involved in an accident, you wouldn't want that license plate to become a flying guillotine. In NY, license plates must be properly affixed to the front and back of the vehicle.

Yes, and yes. Yes, you can duct tape your plate to the roof if you want, it's your car, and your plate. And yes, you will get pulled over for improper display of plates. 61-3-301. Registration -- license plate required -- display. (1) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, a person may not operate a motor vehicle upon the public highways of Montana unless the vehicle is properly registered and has the proper number plates conspicuously displayed, one on the front and one on the rear of the vehicle, each securely fastened to prevent it from swinging and unobstructed from plain view, except that vehicles authorized to display demonstrator plates under 61-4-125 or 61-4-129 may have only one number plate conspicuously displayed on the rear. A person may not display on a vehicle at the same time a number assigned to it under any motor vehicle law except as provided in this chapter. A junk vehicle, as defined in Title 75, chapter 10, part 5, being driven or towed to an auto wrecking graveyard for disposal is exempt from the provisions of this section. That happens to be Montana. California gets more specific with words which require it to be no higher or lower than a certain number of inches, and in the center of the vehicle, etc. But most states have laws which begin "...permanently attached..." which would not be the back window. Every car has a place to put them, and all it takes is a couple of bolts or screws. Get them mounted and displayed.

Depends on the cop? It is illegal, if you give them a reason or they want to it is a probable cause reason.

It's quite possible that you will be pulled .... there is no way of knowing that the licence plate in the window is the one that belongs to the car .... a couple of screws is all it takes.......
