Your Motorcycle/Scooter May Not Be Legal

Products you buy online may be illegal in the United States. That's the warning from the Texas Department of Transportation.

Motorcycles and scooters are illegally being imported to the U.S. They are sold online at websites like E-Bay and through private dealers. The vehicles do not meet environmental standards and cannot be registered in the State of Texas.

A number of people have already been turned away from registration at the Lubbock County Tax Office. "Without people actually seeing the vehicle for themselves, there's no way to know it has appropriate labels indicating they do not pass EPA and DOT," said Bobby Meeks, TXDOT Regional Manager.

Bobby Meeks says legal vehicles do have labels indicating they pass EPA standards.
