-We Need Skylines
Here is a petition started to help change the DOT/EPA regulations on the importation laws to change the eligibility from 25 years to 15 years. The petition was created on November 9, 2011. The goal is to get 25,000 signatures on the petition.
Here is the information on the petition page:
we petition the obama administration to:
Stop using Homeland Security funds to seize imported vehicles, and change the DOT/EPA exemption to 15 years.
The Department of Homeland Security spends a shockingly disproportionate amount of its budget not on security initiatives, but on customs seizures. In particular, importers of grey-market vehicles have been targeted by monies taxpayers have intended to be used to secure our country against terrorism and terrorist activity. We call upon the Executive Branch to immediately cease this wasteful activity, and furthermore to change the DOT/EPA exemption time on grey-market vehicles from 25 years to 15 years (to match the vehicle regulations of Canada), recognizing that the 25-year rule was enacted due to support from special interests such as Mercedes Benz North America.
Please create an account and sign the petition: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/%21/petition/stop-using-homeland-security-funds-seize-imported-vehicles-and-change-dotepa-exemption-15-years/3rPn5sXQ?utm_source=wh.gov&utm_medium=shorturl&utm_campaign=shorturl
Help us spread this petition to everyone in the U.S. and encourage everyone to sign the petition. This is one small step in the ultimate goal and will benefit many automotive enthusiasts.
