Default Import Laws Petition

http://wh.gov/b6q

A legitimate petition, apparently the government will review the law on the bans of imported vehicles to make it such that any vehicle 15 years or older can be imported... if there are 25k signatures by dec whatever date, shouldn't be too hard to do with the power of the internet, post on your facebook etc

Gotta make a White House.gov account.

This has NSA surveillance all over it.

Which thread is this on the subject? First? Second? Third? Fourth? Fifth?

I'm really not sure because it's dated November 10th.



Edit: For something that's been posted so many times, I'm surprised there's only 1700 votes. Are people really that lazy to create an account? It took me all of 10 seconds.

They will review it, send it to policy experts and issue a response...so nothing will change.

More ricers on the road is the biggest benefit; well that and less money spent on hunting down something as stupid as illegally imported cars. I think homeland security should spent less money hunting down illegal cars and more money hunting down illegal aliens, but that's just me.


The more ricers on the road is beneficial to all of us though because they'll stick out like a sore thumb and cops will likely overlook us regular folks running stop signs and doing illegal u-turns because they're too busy trying to think of an excuse to pull over and ticket the ricers.

Even if they can get the necessary number of signatures the government isn't going to listen. They're just going to wipe their *** with the petition and tell all the ricers and import enthusiasts to wait 25 years before they can get their skylines and rhd ITRs and whatever.

Actually they do, you just gotta keep track of it and push it. That's how WA state passed suppressor use this year. Though I don't care about importing cars.

I do hope everyone knows that even if your car is exempt from smog checks, modifying the existing equipment is still against the law. Any cop that chooses to check the car can make your life a living hell if you do.
