I side-mounted mine, in DC I wouldn't be worried as the police there have pressing crime-related issues to deal with, in MD I'd feel OK, But in VA forget about it, it's probably the most penal state in the union when it comes to automobile violations. They don't mess around with anything, I make sure the car and my driving are on the straight and narrow when i'm over in that part of the DMV. It's just not the state you want to get pulled over in, they'll happily destroy your day.
