You may use the following points in your message:
- H. 307 would save money, conserve resources, and bring the state in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.
- H. 307 would protect the aesthetic contours of cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on original bumpers.
- H. 307 would accommodate classic and special-interest vehicles, many of which are not originally equipped with a designated place to display a front plate.
- H. 307 would permit window shading or tinting material on the side and vent windows to the left and right side of the driver to shield passengers from the rays of the sun.
- H. 307 would allow greater performance and styling equipment options for automotive enthusiasts in the state and the industry supporting their hobby.
Overview: SAN-supported legislation (H. 307) has been introduced in Vermont to require the display of only a single, rear-mounted license plate for all passenger vehicles with a registered weight of 10,000 pounds or less. H. 307 would also allow window shading or tinting material on the side and vent windows to the left and right side of the driver. Under current law vehicles must display two license plates and exempts window shading or tinting material only for medical reasons. A similar bill to allow single license plates was also introduced earlier this year. The bill currently awaits consideration in the House Committee on Transportation.
