This law as written will require many low income folks to revert to mass transit or their autos rather than stick with cheep Mopeds providing 100 or more miles per gallon of fuel.
Also, I really doubt it was to combat stolen Mopeds in MD state. I would guess Yrly thefts are only 10-100! I wonder if bicycles are next for registration if theft is a valid reason?
My ins co said in neighborhood of 200$ for annual insurance.
As I ride 95% of time only on non county or city roads, I will not paying that type of $s to register. I may register once if cheep. I also wonder why a provided cheep plate or sticker can't be easily removed by any wood-be thief?
