    Why not contact your local police department or sheriff's department for accurate answers to your query?

    Better yet, your friend allegedly has a problem, you don't.

    Tell your pal to do his own research.

    Yes. It's addressed by PA's Vehicle Code Section 1332(b) Obscuring Plate:

    2018 Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes :: Title 75 - VEHICLES :: Chapter 13 - Registration of Vehicles :: Section 1332 - Display of registration plate

    If the light was so bright that it made any of the numbers and/or letters unreadable in the ways listed, then that's why he got cited.

    I'm guessing that the light was probably hanging and exposed.

    Of course, the OP has no clue what the real story is.
