Anyone know why Massachusetts does not issue temporary tags?
I am a New Jersey resident about to buy a car in MA (a used car that is not available locally, believe me, I’ve looked), but unlike New Jersey, New York, Maryland, etc., I cannot take the car home after paying for it because of the no temp tag thing. I have to go home with the title, spend (significant) time at DMV to register the car in New Jersey, mail the stuff back to the dealer, and then (lucky for me) the dealer delivers the car to NJ.
But what is the deal with Massachusetts? (And why aren’t dealers storming the MA legislature so that their lives are eased and returns on an interstate sale are increased?)
