Michigan Introduces Bill to Ease Towing Restrictions
DON’T DELAY! Please contact the Michigan State Senate Committee on Transportation Immediately to request support for H.B. 5100:
- H.B. 5100 acknowledges that the use of a hitch, tow ball, or bicycle rack will naturally obstruct the view of a rear license plate.
- H.B. 5100 recognizes that these towing modifications are vital functions for many vehicle owners.
Overview: Legislation (H.B. 5100) allows for the attachment of a tow ball, bicycle rack, removable hitch, or any other device designed to carry an object on the rear of a vehicle without violation of the statute that the rear license plate shall not be obstructed. This bill is currently in the Senate Committee on Transportation.
