HB 561 would amend current Transportation Code by adding a new subchapter that would regulate package delivery vehicles. The vehicles regulated in this subchapter include: all-terrain vehicles, golf carts, motor carriers, neighborhood electric vehicles, recreational off-highway vehicles, and utility vehicles.
The bill would require package delivery vehicles be equipped with license plates designating the vehicles as package delivery vehicles. The bill would authorize the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles to charge a license plate fee not to exceed $25 annually and deposited to the Department of Motor Vehicles fund.
Vehicles qualifying as package delivery vehicles may have limited public highway access that is not an interstate or controlled-access highway and has a speed limit not more than 35 miles per hour.
