You may use the following points in your message:

  • H. 16 would help protect the aesthetic contours of pleasure cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden and expense of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.
  • H. 16 would save money, conserve resources and bring Vermont in line with other comparable states that are moving to a single plate requirement.  
  • H. 16 provides that the single plate requirement would take effect on July 1, 2017.  

Overview: Legislation (H. 16) was introduced to provide that motor vehicles registered as pleasure cars may display only a single plate on the rear of the vehicle.  Under Vermont law “pleasure cars” are defined as most all power propelled vehicles, except for many work vehicles including farm tractors, vehicles running only upon stationary rails or tracks, motorized highway building equipment, road making appliances, snowmobiles, or tracked vehicles or electric personal assistive mobility devices.  The bill will be considered by the House Transportation Committee.
