    This is a bunch of BS!

    It's not all us good folks in Utah though. I know way more of us Utahns that are as irratated as you are. I sent my letters of opposition to the senators. Most of us are just as excited as you are for Easter Jeep Safari in Moab every year.
    I hope to see some of you crawling around the red rocks next month!

    While I don't agree with it, only the Utah residents would be affected by it passing. Though it would open the "door" for other states to follow. NJ already has one in place. NJ usually follows behind CA in most auto laws.
    As long as your vehicle passed your state's inspection, then you're G2G (at least that's the way I see it.)

    There seems to be a movement to stop offroading and I guess they will to any lengths...modified exhaust...really?

    Although I dont think its a good law, banning trips to Moab is counterproductive. The liberals are looking for any reason to close the Moab trails, just like Tellico. The revenue being brought in during this tough economic time is part of what's keeping the area open.

    Not necessarily true.
    Have you ever driven through the wonderful commonwealth of Va?
    You can be ticketed here if you vehicle does not pass Virginia laws. Your home/registered State doesn't matter, and they could care less if you pass inspection there. If you wouldn't pass it here, they'll pull you over and let you know with a fine.
    Probably the biggest I've seen here is window tint. In FL 35% is the legal limit on the front doors, and in VA it's 50%. By driving on the roads in VA you agree to obey all of their vehicle laws. I suspect it's this way in most other states as well.

    I don't know about Va. but a few years ago I was ticketed in the People Republic of California for my window tint. The tint I had was too dark by Caly law but legal, at the time, here in Nv. I told the CHP officer that it was legal in Nv. and he said, "Well you're not in Nv. now are you?" I ended up taking my chances in court and beat the ticket. The judge explained that since I was not a resident of Ca. they could not expect me to remove my tint every time I went to visit family. That may hold tru in many states. If you reside there, you must obey thier laws. Being as many here are still active military and are in one state and have vehicles registered in an other, I would think that you must make your vehicle compliant to the state you are residing in not where it is registered in.

    Sin, while I was at Ft Hood, my POS F150 wouldn't pass TX Inspection. I registered it at home in MN, and then had no problems (I finally did get it running right)

    On the poll: I think the proposed law is stupid.

    There is no way they could 'ban the event' though, way to many people head out there regardless of EJS.

    And, banning/stooping/not holding EJS would only really hurt the town of Moab. The rest of Utah would'nt feel as great an impact, and not right away.

    But the little town of Moab would become a ghost town

    i dont know how many of you have been to Moab, but ive seen some crazy contraptions running around town there during EJS and other events throughout the year. the local police realize what ticket EVERYONE would do to the economy and let alot of crap slide.
