“Dear PoPville,

I’m wondering whether I should register my scooter? I just purchased a used 50cc Vespa from Maryland, where it had been registered (but never got plates). As I understand it, DC’s new scooter law does technically require that 50cc scooters be registered and get a safety inspection. Looking around, though, it doesn’t seem that most scooters are registered (they don’t have plates, anyway). Any thoughts?”
