You could also be charged for not having it installed horizontally 3.02, obstructed 3.03 or 3.01 not in accordance with the regs. You would have the flipper seized to prevent continuation of the offence...and maybe a verfy fine tooth comb would be run over, under, inside and outside your vehicle looking for other defects.
