The House gave initial approval in March to a measure that would give motorcycle owners 10 days, instead of the current seven days, to get their vehicle inspected. The proposal is currently tied up in the Bills in Third Reading Committee.
Supporters said the additional three days are necessary because there is not an abundance of stations that perform motorcycle inspections and riders are often not able to ride on rainy and snowy days.
“Allowing 10 days to obtain a safety inspection sticker in this case is a move which could be easily made while significantly helping to ease the everyday stress of our motorcycle owners,” said the bill’s sponsor Rep. Bill Galvin (D-Brighton) when the bill was first approved.
