For the smart alec "don't get pulled over in the first place", well sometimes it's not your fault or choice, like when a senile 85 year old woman pulled out of a parking lot in front of us.
But yes, I try to avoid such situations.
As already mentioned, in Ohio it's not optional, we are required to inform.
We are NOT required to keep it concealed however.
