Really took this issue into consideration when buying my rack. Sorry to hear you were dinged.
what did you end up getting?
I bought a 1up like shoreboy has. Although the licence plate location on my Subaru's is just high enough that it is in view for the most part.
The thule and Yakima racks obsured the plate which was a no go for me.
Very good question is what is the deal with putting an additional plate on the back when the plate is obscured? Maybe rack attack or a rack place can answer this? Be nice to get something set in stone because I'm sure the RCMP just shrug their shoulders saying it's up to the officer to interpret the law. I see SUVs on the shore with a 4 bike Thules and the plate isn't just obscured, it's completely hidden.
Only a matter of time until you get dinged.
