Weight Provision Is Faulty, Says Secretary Of State F. A. Jeter, In Statesman. Mucli injustice has resulted from the administration of the Idaho au tomobile registration law and efforts will be made to bave apparent errors in the law corrected when the 1025 legislature meets, statement issued Saturday by F. A. of state, who is according to a Jeter, secretary charged with administration of the law. Mr. Jeter says he is going to ask the governor to recommend to the legislature a refund of $7.60 to each owner of a Ford runabout who forced to buy a truck license be was cause of a small box on the back of the car. His statement follows; "In the administration of the motor vehicle laws during my present term, I have seen much injustice because of certain provisions of the law, and I am particularly anxious these matters to the attention of the people so that remedies may l>e ef to bring fected at the coming session of the legislature. Three Points Attacked "There are three points in the au tomobile law which great deal of criticism. There are the of a motor truck. have caused a I he definition weight of a motor vehicle time for renewing licenses. covering the definition t rut -k and the weight of a motor ve hide was passed by the last session 0 f the legislature; that requiring reg psfrn-finn on the first day of Janu has been in effect for several enforced until this and the The law of a motor ary years, but never year. "The definition of a motor truck as it appears In the law, was added by the legislature of 1023. A motor truck is defined as any motor vehicle de signed or used for the transportation of commodities, merchandise, produce, freight or animals. The policy of the department of law enforcement thru on this section lias out the year been only to enforce the laws on the statute books. The word 'or' is the cause of most of the trouble. "It requires that any motor vehicle or used for um either designated transportation of commodities, chandlse, produce, freight, or ani mals, shall be classed us a truck. This definition of a truck takes In the Ford runabout with the small box placed on the roar, no mutter how small the box is. if it is designed to carry commodities. This has result ed in a very decided Injustice to at least 3000 owners of Ford runabouts mor I Intend to ask recommend to the legislature that this section he changed to clarify the def inition of a truck, and further recom $7.50 to each that the governor (he refund of mend ,,, , owner of a Ford runabout which lias been licensed at the truck rate. Weight Provision Troublesome « The second question which has concerns the Section 1592, Idaho as amended in caused dissatisfaction weight of cars. Compiled Sin lutes, 1923 , states that 'for the purpose this chapter the weight of any motor Vehicle is hereby defined to be the weight of such vehicle with all equip furnished by the manufacturer shall the of ment thereof, hut in no event weight used for determining the 11 fee be less than the scale weight as operated on cense of the vehicle t Iw This section can roads or highways.' ...... be clarified very easily and Its inter pretation made very plain if the legis lature may see fit to adopt the manu facturers' weight In each instance as the basis upon which to figure the license fee. The second clause of the law Is contradictory to the first and should be made plain ns to what the Intention of the legislature was. The legislature added the last clause for a definite purpose and we felt It was our duty to carry out that pur pose to the best of our ability. "Section 1601 provides for the ncwal of licenses annually, 'such re newal to take effect on the first day of January of each year. With cli matic conditions ns they are In Idaho it is apparent that this section is not in line with the wishes of the people. Therefore I intend to ask the gover i( re to recommend to the legislature date for renewing licenses be than the first of nor that a established later January. "There is only one body that can modify the laws, and that change or is the legislature. F. A. Jeter, Secretary of State."
