Title 23 : Motor Vehicles



(Cite as: 23 V.S.A. § 731)
  • § 731. Legislative intent

    (a) The General Assembly finds that a comprehensive training program for motorcycle operators would enhance operator safety and reduce the number of injuries that occur as a result of motorcycle crashes. Since the great majority of motorcycle crashes involve inexperienced operators, a training program focused on inexperienced operators is the primary purpose of this legislation. The training program established shall be operated pursuant to nationally recognized safety and training standards and shall be funded from registration and license fees paid by Vermont motorcycle operators.

    (b) It is the intent of the General Assembly that revenue from fee increases specified in this act shall be used for administration of the motorcycle rider training program and expenses relating to the program, including instructor training, licensing improvement, alcohol and drug education, public awareness, a driver improvement program for motorcyclists, technical assistance, program promotion, and other motorcycle safety programs. Funds may also be used for reimbursement of persons with course sites. (Added 1989, No. 268 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. June 21, 1990; amended 1997, No. 9, § 3, eff. May 6, 1997; 2019, No. 131 (Adj. Sess.), § 159.)
