An Act To Require the Inspection of Certain Vehicles Used To Transport Members of the General Public
Sec. 1. 29-A MRSA 1752, as amended by PL 2013, c. 381, Pt. A, 4, is further amended by adding at the end a new paragraph to read:
A motor vehicle not otherwise subject to inspection must be inspected to determine that its lights and brakes are in working condition within one year before the motor vehicle is used to transport a member of the general public. Prior to transporting a member of the general public in the motor vehicle, the owner of the motor vehicle must sign and submit to the Secretary of State an affidavit certifying that within the past year the motor vehicle was inspected and it was determined that its lights and brakes were in working condition. A person who executes a false affidavit or otherwise violates this paragraph commits a civil violation for which a fine of up to $500 may be adjudged.
This bill requires that a motor vehicle not otherwise subject to inspection be inspected for working lights and brakes within one year before transporting a member of the general public. Prior to transporting a member of the general public in the vehicle, the owner of the vehicle must certify by affidavit that the inspection requirements have been met. The owner is subject to a fine of up to $500 for executing a false affidavit or otherwise violating the inspection requirements.
