We have a similar law in California.  I keep a printout of the relevent 
paragraphs of the vehicle code (It's available online in CA) with my 
registration so I can produce it along with the driver's license and reg 
at a traffic stop.  

I've never been stopped in CA, but I was once by an over-eager female 
rookie cop in Tucson, AZ.  (I was mobile at night and she saw the 
glowing PC screen when we were stopped side-by-side at a red light.  I 
showed her the vehicle code except, but didn't mention it was from CA.  
She let me go with no questions at all. )
