    Question about our target truck.

    We had our truck for years, it is no way road worthy one bit. its an old stakebody we use to move targets from the trailor to the traps.

    No licence, no registration, no nothing. It has not seen the road in years.

    Here is the question:

    What are the laws in PA regarding "farm vehicles" and insurance/licence/registration?

    I am being told from our new President we can no longer use the truck becuase it has no insurance.

    What is the deal?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Talk to your insurance carrier.

    On what authority are you told this?

    I have a local ordinance here that requires current tags on any vehicle kept outside. This is to prevent junkers in yards and i understand that.

    So my plow jeep which never went on the road, was registered.

    But htis was after a go round with the inspector.

    I would question your Prez.

    Jeff,

    I suspect your club prez is wrong about the insurance issue. Only a review of your insurance policy will tell for sure. Get a copy of it and read through it.

    Whether or not you're in compliance with PA motor vehicle laws is another question but really doesn't impact the insurance situation.

    My comment above regarding motor vehicle laws and the impact of the insurance policy may not be correct. It will depend on which coverage form your policy contains.
