Undercover Police Cars

I did a search, but didn't come up with anything. If I missed it, or just didn't use the right keywords, could someone just point me in the right direction, thanks.

So, I've been seeing a lot of undercover police cars driving around that in order to 'hide' themselves better, have appearences that would normally get 'us' a ticket. Are the police really that much above the law? IE: seen cars with N's on the back, sideways N's, plates in the front window, tint all around, tinted tails etc. Are they really allowed to do this, and then give out a ticket for the exact same thing?

Personally, I wouldn't think so.
If anything, their car's should follow the MVA rules to the dot. How can they expect us to follow the rules if they do not.

No, they are not exempt from the rules for vehicle equipment.

That said, there is no rule that says they cannot display an N. The offence with regard to new driver signs is in not displaying one when it is required to be.

What about if the officer's vehicle had the N sideways so it looked like a Z, or if it was partially tucked behind the liscence plate to keep the N from fall off of the car?

Nothing wrong with that I think? I used to have mine sideways and tucked under the plate and I got pulled over and the cop did not even mention that.

If you are not a N driver, i dont think it matters because you dont need to have one on the first place.I think it can be just considered as a magnet/decoration purpose. so having a N sideways for a class 5 is samething as having a sticker with the letter Z.

I know that of all the RCMP (ie. government owned) ghost cars that I've seen comply with the MVA and MVAR. I also know that I've seen several VPD vehicles with front tint.

What is the justification for this violation? It's highly dangerous.

So does what skidmark said apply to L signs as well?
As in, it isn't against the MVA or anything to display an L if you aren't an L driver right?

thats correct. you dont have to be a cop to put an N or L sign on the back of your car even though you dont need to. you can have a class 5 and put an L on the back, but why would you?
