The short answer here is yes, your vehicle must comply with the laws of the jurisdiction you choose to operate it in, with certain exemptions of course. For example, the front and rear plate debate....if your vehicle complies with the state in which it is registered (assuming you are a resident and it is legally registered there) then there is nothing law enforcement can do. I live in NC where only one plate is required but when I drive into VA where two are required, I'm still in compliance. Other things though, like window tint, loud exhaust, slick tires, lighting, etc. must comply with the laws of wherever you are. Obviously, it really depends on how gung-ho the officer is in these things but I would say MOST of the time if you politely explain that you are from out of town/state/country you probably won't get a ticket for those types of violations.

Tlauden, it's funny how different agencies use different colors. Here in NC any vehicle running any type of blue light is a law enforcement vehicle of some kind. Red is for fire/EMS/rescue. I think the EMS and rescue also run some orange lights.
