What state do you live in?

Each one has different vehicle codes.

Hmmm? Guess they have nothing better in Maine than to right up regulations? But then again they are only as good as the enforcement. RI has a bunch of regs but you never see people getting tickets. Maybe they save it for when someone is a smart *** so they can hand them a 4 page ticket?

Hints and tips regarding state laws....

Remember at all times that these laws were written by beurocrats. What could be summed up in one normal sentance will be drawn out into four or five overstated run-on sentances per paragraph. You should read it several times because thats what it will take for a non-beurocrat to fully grasp what it is trying to say. Then read it again the next day just to make sure. If there is a search function on the website, use it because the same regulations could be references in several different statutes. On that note, do not be surprised if one statute contradicts another one.

After reading all that, you should print the relevent sections out and keep them in your glove box. This will be of assitance in an encounter with the law or if you have to go through a DMV inspection. Speaking of DMV inspections, if you have to do that, then you should stop by and find out what they look for. Don't be surprised if it is different than the state law. I know, its stupid but we aren't talking about the sharpest tools in the shed here. Thats why they are politicians and DMV inspectors.
