The New York bill would help protect the aesthetic contours of certain historic vehicles and relieve vehicle owners of the burden and expense of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.
   

Legislation was introduced in the New York State Senate to provide that a historical motor vehicle which was not manufactured with a license plate display area on the front of the vehicle may display only a single plate on the rear of the vehicle.

Among other things, the bill would help protect the aesthetic contours of certain historic vehicles and relieve vehicle owners of the burden and expense of having to create mounting holes on some original bumpers.

The measure provides that the single-plate requirement would take effect January 1 in the year after enactment into law. The bill will be considered by the Senate Transportation Committee.
