FS: 11-99 CHP plate frame

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Hows it going guys?

So I have a AUTHENITC CHP 11-99 Plate Frame fro sale.
I have 2 and Kinda need the extra cash for mods! (haha)
In the pictures, they are different that is because one is an updated one and the other is an older plate frame...
I'm asking 900.00 obo because of the raised in suggested donation... it used to be $1,800.00 for the "classic" or first level of donation now it is $2,500.00 etc.

Found some Q&A from another forum...
To answer a few questions:

Q2. Is this thing legitimate?
A2. Yes, it is the real deal - AUTHENTIC from the 11-99 foundation.

Q3. Does the badge and/or wall plaque come with it?
A3. No. Because they are personalized, they would do you no good.

Q4. Don't I need the badge to prove my membership if asked by a CHP officer? I read a story on some guy didn't have the badge and got into some deep s**t.
A4. First, 11-99 is a private non profit organization, NOT a government entity. The license frame is simply a gift for making a cash donation. It is NOT illegal in any way, shape, or form to possess this frame, nor does possession imply any special privilege. CHP or any other law enforcement have no legal right whatsoever to hassle you over your membership.

Q5. This is basically a "get out of tickets" thing, right?
A5. Yes, No, and Maybe. First, any local/municipal/out of state law enforcement officer won't give a rat's ass about your 11-99 frame. You will get NO special treatment from local law enforcement, ever. With respect to CHP, the answer is: it depends. I have been stopped with the frame on my car only once, and I was let go. The officer specifically referenced the license plate frame as the reason he let me go. While that is just 1 CHP officer out of 10,000, that alone should speak volumes. And for the record, he did NOT ask to see any special badge or membership card. Displaying this frame on your car MAY increase the chances of you receiving a warning in lieu of a citation from the CHP. However, leniancy may depend entirely on the severity of your crime. If you were doing 120mph racing 3 cars, I would expect you to be arrested, with or without this frame.

Q6. How many do you have?
A6. One

Q7. What condition is it in?
A7. 10/10 it is brand new never used

Q8. Can I get a refund if CHP gives me a ticket anyway.
A8. No. This isn't Costco. All sales are final.










Thanks e90post.

Not a bad idea but how many tickets would you need to get in order for the "donation" to be worth it? One ticket with traffic school cost me $400 and a weekend, and it was done. Seems kinda expensive to get something to BS a CHP that might or might not work.

Anyways GLWS.

yea this sounds a little absurd for a plate frame. I'm sure you can get one custom made to look exactly like that for much less.

You're suppose to get it to help them out
Not to get out of tickets

the 2k is to donate to the local CHP!

these plates will not get you out of anything... I have first hand experience.

Just so everybody who read this knows, if you do donate to the 11-99 foundation. The donation really go to the family members that have lost a significant other; i.e. Father or to families that have significant hardships due to an unhealthy child that needs $2-300K or more worth of cancer treatment.

$900 is absurd. If someone is purchasing this to trick an officer, then they can pay max $50 and have it copied.

If someone wants the plate because of its donation and to help the CHP, they would actually donate the money

This is about as rediculous as it gets...I have KMA plates since my cousin is a LAPD and I asked him about CHP's foundation plates. The donations were suppose to goto family of slain or deceased officers. Also if you have family that are CHP you can get these as well....you can't get out of tickets just by having this plate frame.

Ok, so I dont think I am going to get $900 worth of tickets in my life. Maybe if you made this thing $300-500 I would consider it.

What's funny about this thread is that even though the majority here think it's a waste, there are 10x more people who will say that it has saved them at least once.

yea cause most of them here doesnt have one and assume that it will not help... IN ALL HONESTY IT DOES..... I have a KMA and Sherriff plate and it has save me so many times. uncle, brother and cousin are in the same profession. So in my sake cops have pulled me over several times and has not given me a ticket....

now about OP's plate.... you can have it or run if you like but most CHP will request a membership card so if you dont have one.. well lets just say you probably will get a ticket.... if you do show the membership card most of the time you get a warning...

so TO PEOPLE HERE SAYING THAT IT DOES NOT WORK IT DOES... BUT OF COURSE IT HAS TO BE LEGIT.... if you have a membership card meaning you do actually pay the membership and help those in needs...

SO BUYING THIS ALONE WONT HELP MUCH.... BUT YES IT MIGHT HELP A LITTLE BIT ... BUT IF YOU THINK YOU CAN GETAWAY BY DRIVING FAWKIN INSANE AND HAVING THIS PLATE ON... WELL LETS JUST SAY THAT DONT WORK... SPECIALLY YOU GET CAUGHT WITHOUT THE MEMBERSHIP CARD...

AMMMMMMM YES AND NO.... USUALLY THEY WILL ASK AND IF YOU HAVE ONE TO SHOW PROOF THAT YOU ARE REALLY DONATING MOST OF THE TIME YOU GET AWAY WITH WARNING.

AND IF YOU DONT... WELL THEY ALWAYS THINK THAT YOUR ABUSING IT, SO MORE TICKETS FOR YOU... AND IN THIS CASE THEY USUALLY FIND EVERYTHING THEY CAN.
