I understand the concern here... my question is if that could be enforced? Could he get in trouble for not painting it??Guinness2429 said:He wasn't playing blue light bandit, but I told him to repaint it when he got the chance.
No problem Guinness... I understand the gist of what you are saying... thanks!Guinness2429 said:At the time Joe Public was cruising around in the ex-bluebird, we all went looking for what the applicable law was regarding re-painting marked cruisers. I forget exactly what we found, but basically the selling agency is responsible for removing all the law enforcement do-dads from the vehicle before re-sale. So, if the agency didn't remove the distinctive paint job, it wasn't the buyer's fault or responsibility. That's my best memory of the incident. It could have changed since then or we just were searching in the wrong place at the time. Sorry for the wishy-washy answer.
They probably figure it will cost more to paint!lima1411 said:Ch 266 92A says that whoever (other than the commonwealth or it's political subdivisions) sells a marked bluebird to an end user without first painting the exterior a solid color shall be fined not less than $10 nor more than $500. No real consequences there.
