Hang Tag Question

:
2017 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring
Hello,

Does anyone know if a hang tag will interfere with any of the cameras, or the operation of them if I leave one in while driving?

Thanks much!

No. The OEM cameras are flush against the windshield so a hang tag cannot get between them.

Also, the same goes for dash cams, of which I have a front and rear.

But I thought that in most, if not all states, it's against the law to drive with one hanging from the rear view mirror. Of course, I suspect it depends on how long they are and if they impair the driver's vision.

About a year ago, I was given a ticket (NY state) for driving with a hang tag. On the plus side, I was pulled over for speeding so the hang tag citation was preferred.

Hang tag = a placard / sign that *hags* off your rear view mirror to designate your car is approved for something. ex - handicap tags, parking passes, etc.

In NY, nothing is supposed to impede your view out of windshield. Hang tags are supposed to be removed when driving.

It is Illegal in Fl. Why would I want to leave something near my front windshield that can distract and cause an accident and is Illegal. They drive among us.

I think its illegal in almost every, if not every state.

Omg there*s no need to roast the OP over hang tags. They make small tags these days that fit entirely behind the rear view mirror and don*t obstruct anything. Colleges, companies, and apartment complexes use them all the time.

Just for what its worth, I was asking if they interfered with the cameras, not the legality of using them.
