Federal participation in vehicle tracking and registration: NMVTIS


I didn't know this existed, and I stumbled across it when I was trying to figure out exactly what car cloning included (just a plate swap? Nope -- VIN replacement with the VIN of a car of similar make and model that is legal and Somewhere Else. Yikes! Identity theft on cars!).

This is a pretty recent development, and I think it's an indication that the federal government is not completely unwilling to get involved in license plate and related issues on cars. I think the i95 coalition might want to explore this as an option, in the unlikely event we ever have a functioning legislature again.
