The House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee approved legislation to amend Ohio's current law defining historical motor vehicles to permit their use on public roads to and from a location where maintenance is performed.

Legislation to amend the state’s current law defining historical motor vehicles to permit their use on public roads to and from a location where maintenance is performed was combined with another bill and approved by the House Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee. The new bill will now be considered by all House members. Under current Ohio law, a “historical motor vehicle" is any motor vehicle that is more than 25 years old and owned solely as a collector's item and for participation in club activities, exhibitions, tours, parades and similar uses, but not for general transportation.

The measure will give Ohio motorists the opportunity to have their historical vehicles serviced or repaired without the threat of being cited by law enforcement for violation of the Motor Vehicle Code.
