    whether you put advertisement on the side or not if you use it for commercial purposes (i.e. pulling your mowing equipment) then you are suposed to have comm. tags.

    That's why it's called the "Green" business.

    A friend of mine purchased a second truck and put lettering on it before he got his commercial plates and got pulled over immediately. I think he said the fine was $390.00 the cop didn't even let him off with a warning. He is a legitimate business man/LCO for 20 years now. He warned me to get the plates then the lettering so I did!
    Funny they don't seem to bother people pulling trailers with un-lettered trucks and standard plates.... If they did it would cut down on all the illegal operators...
