Military And Surplus Military Vehicles On Roadways


The bill allows surplus military vehicles to be driven on roadways. Historical military vehicles, which are vehicles valued for historical purposes, are of a model year 1980 or earlier, and maintain historically appropriate markings, may be driven on a highway, but only: To and from assemblies, conventions, or other meetings where historical military vehicles and their ownership are the primary interest; On special occasions, for demonstrations and parades; On occasions when the operation of the vehicle on the highways will not constitute a traffic hazard; and To, from, and during local, state, or national tours held primarily for the exhibition and enjoyment of historical military vehicles. The vehicles will be issued a certificate of title as a motor vehicle and a registration as a motor vehicle. But if the vehicle is transferred to another person who does not intend to use the vehicle for historical purposes, the title will revert back to an off-highway title and the vehicle will no longer be registered. Historical military vehicles are exempted from emissions testing. An historical military vehicle is exempt from the inspection and use of emission controls unless emission controls are standard equipment at the time of manufacture, in which case, the equipment must be in proper working condition to operate the historic military vehicle on the highway.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
