Feds Propose to Increase Motorcycle License Plate Mounting Angle

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has issued a proposed rule to allow motorcycle license plates to be mounted at an angle of up to 30 degrees beyond vertical rather than the current 15-degree limit. The change would provide additional manufacturer design flexibility and match current European regulations. The issue is covered under Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108 (lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment).
