In fa­vor of his­toric tag law change

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I would like to re­spond to Mr. John Roberts let­ter con­cern­ing the His­toric Ve­hi­cle Law. As the owner of a his­toric ve­hi­cle, I couldn’t be more in fa­vor of this law. Peo­ple who have reg­is­tered their ve­hi­cles as his­toric and use them for daily trans­porta­tion are the very rea­son Mary­land acted to strengthen this law.

For many years, the mo­tor ve­hi­cle law has stated that to be reg­is­tered as a class L his­toric ve­hi­cle, “the ve­hi­cle can only be used in ex­hi­bi­tions, club ac­tiv­i­ties, pa­rades, tours, oc­ca­sional trans­porta­tion and sim­i­lar uses; and will not be used for gen­eral daily trans­porta­tion.”

His­toric ve­hi­cle own­ers who have ben­e­fited by this law due to re­duced fees and reg­u­la­tions, and com­plied with the law, will no doubt agree with me. The other side who have taken ad­van­tage of this law by sim­ply own­ing and driv­ing an old ve­hi­cle are the ones who could even­tu­ally have this ve­hi­cle class stricken from the books all to­gether.
