AN ACT TO CLARIFY THE APPLICATION OF THE HIGHWAY USE TAX TO OUT-OF-STATE VEHICLES TITLED IN THIS STATE, TO IMPROVE THE VEHICLE TITLING PROCESS BY ELIMINATING DUPLICATIVE REQUIREMENTS, AND TO DIRECT DMV TO TITLE AND REGISTER HIGH-MOBILITY MULTIPURPOSE VEHICLES.
House amendment makes the following changes to the 2nd edition.
Amends the long title.
Amends GS 20-4.01 (Definitions) to add and define high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle.
Amends GS 20-50 (Owner to secure registration and certificate of title; temporary registration markers). Provides that the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may issue a title and registration to a high mobility multipurpose wheeled vehicle (HMMWV, also known as a Humvee) sold by a licensed motor vehicle dealer if the manufacturer or dealer provides a sworn affidavit certifying that the HMMWV is safe for highway use, and that it complies with all federal motor vehicle safety standards applicable to such motor vehicle for highway use. Requires completion of a vehicle verification (as specified) by the License and Theft Bureau prior to issuing a title. Requires HMMWVs registered under this statute to undergo a safety and emissions inspection. Protects the DMV and the License and Theft Bureau from liability for injuries or damages arising from the titling, registration, or subsequent operation of an HMMWV registered under this statute.
