Front air blocker, anybody ever get pulled over?

I am considering a full front end block on my car as a temporary to see if it helps at all, but I am curious if anyone has ever got pulled over for their aeromods?

Plus I will need to be driving to college and back everyday next week, so any tips on how to NOT scrape the front end on the ground?

I've been pulled over 7 times so far, mainly by cops curious about my car. They'll pull me over for some trivial reason, then after going through the license/registration/insurance routine, pop the question they were itching to ask, "What's all the stuff on the car for?", or "What kind of car is this?" Never received a ticket after satisfying the cop's curiousity.

Check your local vehicle laws to see if something like that is illegal. Getting pulled over is nothing more than annoying as long as you're not doing anything wrong and can prove it.
