jeez that's crazy. i bet getting one from overseas would be alot more. IS there a specific reason they have these regulations or is it just one more stupid law
Another stupid law purportedly for safety and emissions -- but really to protect the vested interests of the automakers.

You will get pulled over in no time with Dutch plates. Trust me.

Here's some info about all the issues for foreign residents.

Are you really moving here? If so, Fort Worth is a beautiful community. :wink:

Sure would not mind your expertise close by...

And getting pulled over by the cops...they're not all as nice or reasonable as Mark. The odds are you'll eventually get a real prick that can give you a lot of trouble.
After all my braggin about no tickets, I got pulled over yesterday. 47 in a 35. This was a big thoroughfare and not a residential street. I was polite. He was an ass (made me turn off the engine even though it was 102F and the sun was beaming on me). But that's the way it goes.

Don't forget that you will also have to abide by state laws which are usually more restrictive than federal laws. In Texas, you have 30 days to get your license, registration, inspection, and insurance.

Looks likeyou get 90 days in Idaho.

I guess it is SOP for traffic stops in Fort Worth:

Please keep in mind when you are signaled to pull over by an officer that law enforcement can be dangerous work. Do not assume the officer knows that you are a law abiding citizen, officers must be cautious at all times.

When signaled to pull over:

* Pull over as far to the right as safely possible. This allows the officer to more safely walk to your car. On a freeway, you may pull over to the left.
* Turn off the ignition.
* Turn on the interior light if the stop occurs at night.
* Place your hands on the steering wheel until the officer can make a safety evaluation as approaching your car.
* Avoid making any sudden or reaching movements.
* Please stay in your vehicle unless asked by the officer to exit your car.
* If you are carrying a weapon, advise the officer of the weapon and the location.
* Always follow the officer's instructions.

Stopping at night, especially along a dark stretch of road, can heighten the tension for you and the officer. Officers do not object to a driver proceeding to the nearest well-lit area. Simply acknowledge the officer by turning on your flashers and drive at a reduced speed.

If asked to exit the vehicle, walk to the rear of your vehicle to the side away from traffic, or as directed by the officer. Use the vehicle as a barrier between you and on-coming cars.

The officer will ask for two pieces of information: your driver's license and insurance card.

Please do not attempt to argue with the officer. This may increase the tension in an already stressful situation. :lol: Depending on the reason the officer initiated the traffic stop, you may or may not be given a citation. If you receive a citation, you will be advised of your options in making a disposition of the citation.

Once the traffic stop is finished, walk carefully back to your vehicle watching on-coming traffic. When an opportunity exists, carefully merge back into the flow of traffic.

Well, I normally turn off the car but it is friggin roasting right now. I did roll down the window and put my hands on the wheel. He already had my license in hand when he asked me to turn it off. Then he went back to his air conditioned car and wrote the ticket up while I my nuts were roasting.
