The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has officially withdrawn its proposal (Chapter Trans 123) to prohibit the registration of imported vehicles manufactured after 1967 that do not meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS). U.S. law specifically exempts imported vehicles that are 25 years old and older from these safety standards. Trans 123 offered no such reasonable exemption. The regulation would only have permitted the continued registration of subject vehicles that are already legally registered in Wisconsin, but only until they are transferred to a new owner.



Among other things, the proposal failed to recognize the fact that collector vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven, was inconsistent with Federal law and would prohibit the registration of vehicles coming in from other states that have already been proven safe on U.S. roads.



Congratulations and thank you to those who participated in opposing this proposal!

isn't it WI that is having a huge labor dispute between their new gov and state worker to where a few thousand of those are protesting? hopefully this got dropped because its bull and not just because they had to shift their focus for the short-term.

You are correct, Wisconsin is having labor issues with teachers, but this isn't a budgetary issue. It was a regulatory idea that had been kicking around for a year or so.

You mention this continually in your posts, but do you have any actual statistics or studies to back it up? I've seen a bunch of old cars on the road in terrible shape.
