Does not apply in this case, but if you were speeding or tracking your car it could affect insurance. I have heard stories of insurance companies paying photographers to take shots of cars at track days and they subsquently drop your coverage if they find out you were tracking your car. This is why most guys tape up their plates on the track.

The main reason I believe people block out plates is once someone has your plate they can easily identify you (ie look up where you live, check the lean on your car, etc...). No big deal but some people are paranoid.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
