Like someone said above, I can move my plate to the back of the rack. The LED strip I added might sort of light it up. I will admit I don’t always move the plate.
I was trying to be somewhat sarcastic meaning Nitpicking I know. the truth is most people don't even try to make their lights visible.

I'm kind of scratching my head to figure out how a bicycle can block taillights. I mean, car taillights aren't exactly tiny and bikes have spoked wheels you can see through. I guess they can block the license, just like about any other trailer hitch mounted device. I usually put the bike in the bed of my truck, but I have a rack and you can see the lights just fine if I use it.

Kenny you use common sense!!!
3 plus more bikes on small vehicle reduces vision more so if foul weather.

Not hard to block tailights at all. Figure a bikes wheel and tire is 3" or so wide, get two of them offset hanging on a rack at the rear of a vehicle there's 6" of block. Now if you take those mountain bikes with the wider tire and wheel combo it's a lot wider.
I drive a full size Ram 1500, from the back I don't think my tailights are more than 5" wide, the amber turnsignal portion is no more than 3-4" high as well, easily covered. You get a smaller car and their rear lights are proportionally smaller.

I just had a car in front of me today with a bike rack with two bikes. You can kind of see the lights through the bikes but not very well.

And some of us have rear panniers on our bikes that are very good at blocking lights.

Just what you'd want, when you're stopping short in front of a dump truck. :rolleyes:

I've had two friends killed on motorcycles, and two others with life-changing injuries. None of them were at-fault, in their respective accidents.
