Kansas is getting into this currently. New owner of a Ferret was not allowed to license his vehicle. Now a bill is in the works to limit driving of MVs to parades, club events, and to/from maintenance and repairs. Primarily done in the interest of "Homeland Security".
I personally think it's total crap, but maybe someone can provide a legitimate reason? In my opinion, the US Gov't should be REQUIRED to sell all surplus vehicles on the open market, and thus recoup tax dollars that are otherwise sent to demill and scrapped.

If terrorism is the reason, I just can't grsp the concept of being afraid of antique 45mph vehicles, even if armored, when new mfg 100mph Suburbans and other vehicles are available (I didn't say cheap) and NOT regulated.

No restrictions here that I know of, several friends own everything from a Unimog to a surplus Marine Corps 5 ton. Deuce's are cheap and common.

My buddy licensed his Unimog as a "Mercedes convertible"

I'm looking to get a 2 1/2 ton or a 5 ton one of these days.

This bullshit better not start coming down the pike. The 6x6 will be even more definite a thing if I can get into making biodiesel to supplent fuel.

I'm hoping to have 2-3 diesel vehicles within the next 3-4 years.

Since when have politicians needed a reason? Im sure its for our safety of course

Depends on the MV. tracked vehicles don't do roads much good. Many wheeled vehicles don't meet current or past safety or equipment standards. but most shouldn't be a problem.

Now in some states yo0u can get waivers for vehicles that don't meet equipment or safety standards. Then again it may be that Kansas just heard about the guy that flew his Mig into the Farrels.

Another useless "feel-good" law in the end.
