English term or phrase: you got us on F.D.R drive
still more U.S slang....

- and you're so busy acting stupid, that you got us on F.D.R drive, with commercial number plates. Thank you very much.

They're preparing a "job" (coup), and accusing one of holding back on some info.
Other than that, I have no context guide.

Thanks
again.

French translation:Vous nous avez attrapé sur la rue F.D.R.
Explanation:
C'est probable que FDR = Franklin Delano Roosevelt (président des Etats-Unis).
«With commercial plates» me fait penser qu'un agent de police a arrêter la personne pour une violation traffique.
(«plate» = plaque pour une véhicule.)
On peut se cache au derrière d'une plaque «commercial,» parce que c'est pas personnelle.
