    So came home (from work, in Bridget) to this notice from the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration:
    Important information about Maryland registered historic vehicles

    Dear Historic Vehicle Owner,

    As the owner of a historic vehicle, we want to make you aware of legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly that goes into effect on Saturday, October 1, 2016. It is important to know that this legislation will impact how historic vehicles may be operated.

    Effective October 1, 2016, a Maryland registered historic vehicle may no longer be used for transportation to and from employment, school, or for commercial purposes.

    In addition, historic vehicles with a model year of 1986 or newer may be subject to safety equipment repair orders issued at roadside by law enforcement.

    Thank you for your compliance with this new Maryland law.

    • One of the reasons that I didn’t get antique tags for mine. In Tennessee, they’re only supposed to be driven to shows or for pleasure cruises on weekends, though you can take them to a repair shop or test drive after a repair during the week. Not sure how much they enforce them, but normal daily driver uses are pretty much prohibited….
