In favor of historic tag law change
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.
