Being perfectly honest, I could not find anything specifically stating that you could not hang anything from your rearview mirror. Of course, I do not live there and have not studied their laws deeply enough to know this for a fact. I do know that it was, at one time, reason (pretext) to pull someone over. This was addressed in the State of Connecticut v. Gregory Cyrus, No. 18326 decided: August 17, 2010. Please note that this is the Supreme Court of Connecticut and not the US Supreme Court. Supreme Court of Connecticut. STATE of Connecticut v. Gregory CYRUS. No. 18326. Decided: August 17, 2010 ROGERS, C.J., and NORCOTT, KATZ, PALMER, VERTEFEUILLE, ZARELLA and McLACHLAN, Js.* Timothy J. Sugrue, assistant state's attorney, with whom were Vincent J. Dooley, senior assistant state's attorney, and, on the brief, Patricia M. Froehlich, state's attorney, for the appellant (state). Ernest Green, Jr., assistant public defender, with whom was Martin Zeldis, chief of legal services, for the appellee (defendant). In this certified appeal,1 the state appeals from the judgment of the Appellate Court affirming the judgment of the trial court dismissing the charges against the defendant, Gregory Cyrus, for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor in violation of General Statutes (Rev. to 2005) § 14-227a, operating a motor vehicle without carrying an operator's license in violation of General Statutes § 14-213, and operating a motor vehicle with an obstructed view in violation of General Statutes § 14-99f (c).2 State v. Cyrus, 111 Conn.App. 482, 484, 959 A.2d 1054 (2008). On appeal to this court, the state claims that the Appellate Court improperly upheld the trial court's conclusion that the state trooper who had arrested the defendant lacked a reasonable and articulable suspicion to stop the defendant to investigate a possible violation of § 14-99f (c), in contravention of Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1, 88 S.Ct. 1868, 20 L.Ed.2d 889 (1968). We disagree with the state and, accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the Appellate Court. ........ The important thing here is what constitutes an obstruction. One would think that if the object is similar in size, you could argue a stop or citation over this. In other words, it is likely that your graduating tassel will not be a problem. However, something like a GPS unit or dash cam could be. But, it really doesn't matter. Since I was wasting energy sitting in the classroom and learning all of this, they have decided that they can make the rules up as they go, including killing people for no reason. The fact is, if they want to pull you over, they will. Most of them have no problem lying about the reason. I have watched more than enough officers pull over attractive young ladies so they can ask them out or something. Your best bet is always to ask the individual who will be prosecuting you, be it a Commonwealth attorney or prosecuting attorney, instead of individuals online or even the police. Very rarely do the police have all of the laws memorized, even when they should.

There are laws on the subject of obstructing the view of the driver. Not all things that hang from a mirror are long enough to extend below the mirror and obstruct the view
