Portland among the many things
discussed, strongly recommended
that the departments in charge
of the highways in the respective
states pos such highways with
appropriate uniform signs and
road markers for the convenience
of the traveling public.
They also strongly endorsed the
Oregon law providing for a tax
en gasoline, deeming this method
of taxation a more equitable dis
tribution of the cost of road and
highway construction, as the own
er of the automobile by virtue
thereof contributes proportionate
ly as he may use the roads, wheth
er for pleasure or in, the pursuit
of his business.
Mutual Law Urged
The secretaries. Instead of pro
viding that a non-resident of the
respective states upon entering
another state register with the
nearest police department and
this department being required to
forward such registration to the
secretary of state for general re
ference and as a clearance bureau
decided that the necessary infor
mation respecting non-residents
for the proper policing of the
highways of the state could be
secured by a mutual exchange of
registration lists. This will give
the secretaries of state of each
of the states complete registra
tion lists of, the motor vehicle
owners in the other states, which
lists will be open to the public
at all times.
The prevailing thought of the
secretaries is to permit the motor
ist to travel unmolested as much
as possible and not require of
him duties which are not enforced
or rather exacted of others who
may travel from one state to
another, by other means of travel.
The idea was to make the recip
rocal privileges between the states
as broad as possible.
Unity Held Necessary
The principal subject and one
which has been unanimously ag
reed upon was that of uniform
traffic regulations and motor
vehicle equipment. Conditions
being different in many of the
cities and towns of the respective
states, it becomes necessary in
order to have an effective uniform
law, to include restrictions which
do not now exist in some of the
cities and again to exclude others
which exist at this time, but with
the experience of the traffic offi
cers believe that the suggested
regulations will meet" every rer
nuirment. so that the motorist
in Oregon, being fully acquainted
with the laws of the state when
motoring in Washington, Idaho or
Montana, by complying with the
laws of Oregon, will know that he
is not violating any of the traffic
regulations in any of these states
in which he may be traveling.
The light and equipment of
cars was also taken up and the
secretaries believe requirements
which will not be oppresive or
difficult t'o comply with should
be made. These suggestions will
be more specifically formulated
and embodied In proposed laws
which the legislatures of the res
pective states will .be asked to
enact at the coming sessions cf
Licensing is Iiocal
It was the concensus of opin
ion that licensing of a notor
vehicle is purely a local regula
tion, as well as the fees exacted,
as some of the states by reason
of the high license fees exempt
the motor Vehicle from the per
sonal property tax. while in others
where the fee is reasonably low
a personal property tax in addi
tion is exacted. j."
Further, it, was the unanimous
nninion of the swrretarjes that
privileges accorded motir vehicle1.
dealers under dealtrs j nrense
should extend only to the states
iu which the dealers reside.
It was unanimously recom-
mended that the license ears be:
made uniform, that is. , that tne
license year should correspond
with the calendar year .in all of
the states, which is notj the cae
now in many instances.
The operator's license, law was
strongly endorsed and it was the
in.-inimmiK tinion of the secre
taries of state that the age limit
for driving automobiles should not
be made less than ifiJyears cf
age. as the Oregon la now pro
vides. Some of them were strong
ly in favor cf raising tn ge to
18 years, but 16 years wf.s agreed
upon as the minimum agr.
