Congratulations to everyone in SD involved in the car hobby. It’s now legal to drive certain vehicles without a front license plate.
HB 1164 to allow a single license plate for special interest vehicles was signed into law by Governor Dennis Daugaard on March 7. Thank you to everyone who helped with this effort. It was a team effort of car enthusiasts who own and drive street rods, customized cars, collector cars, sports cars, or muscle cars. Weather your contribution was large or small, financial, time, contacting legislators, sending e-mails or testifying in Pierre, it helped improve the car hobby for many. A large majority of legislators heard your voice, own cars like ours and supported our bill. After two committee hearings and votes on both floors there was only one “no” vote. With this type of support I do believe future improvements can be made for all special interest plates. We do plan to keep the United Car Council of SD active.
