We opposed legislation which would impose harsh financial penalties on use of a number of unregistered vehicles like ATVs and dirt bikes – and carry the potential to double or triple these fines if an individual is around others similarly driving unregistered vehicles – and which incorporated questionable forfeiture protocols. This bill inappropriately elevated these low-level traffic offenses and failed to recognize that the behavior that the bill is addressing is already illegal while subjecting offenders to these overly harsh punishments.
