HB2774 by Phelan (Relating to the installation of unsafe motor vehicle tires; creating a criminal offense.), As Introduced
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would amend the Transportation Code creating an offense for installing unsafe motor vehicle tires. The offense would be a misdemeanor punishable by fine only.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2017.
Local Government Impact
An offense under the provisions of the bill is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than $100 or more than $500. Costs associated with enforcement and prosecution could likely be absorbed within existing resources. Revenue gain from fines imposed and collected is not anticipated to have a significant fiscal impact.
