  • Chapter 229 AN ACT RELATIVE TO HANDICAPPED STICKERS FOR MOTORCYCLE LICENSE PLATES.

Whereas , The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to extend forthwith handicap access rights to persons owning motorcycles, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


Section 2 of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2000 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out, in lines 259 to 262, the words ", and the medical advisory board as established by section eight C, may determine such other standards of disability and handicap and of qualification for the issuance of said plates as said board deems proper" and inserting in place thereof the following words:- and the registrar may furnish emblems displaying the "International Symbol of Access" to be affixed to motorcycle registration plates in a location to be determined by the registrar; provided, however, that the medical advisory board established by section 8C may determine such other standards of disability and handicap and of qualification for the issuance of such plates or emblems as the board deems proper; and provided, further, that this sentence shall not apply to motorized bicycles.

Approved August 7, 2002.
