Why is it that every time i'm at Claypool Hill K-Mart....There is this truck there with Farm Use tag on it...It is there on the week-end and in the week....I think this person WORKS there i don't think it is there for farm use....I pay for tags and insurance so why don't who ever this is have too!!!!! This truck at K-Mart should be looked in to by the Police!!!!!

Posting "Farm Use" on your vehicle is of course the most restrictive in terms of how you are allowed to use the vehicle, but it has the least requirements for registration and fees. In order to fit within the scope of farm use, the farmer can generally only use his vehicle on the highway for the following reasons: 1) traveling between the farmer's tracts of land that are no more than 30 miles apart; 2) taking the vehicle to the repair shop for repairs; 3) taking trash and garbage generated on the farm to the landfill or disposal facility; 4) getting farm supplies from locations no more than 30 miles away; or 5) transporting farm produce and livestock on a seasonal basis for no more than 30 miles or to the nearest market, packing plant, or storage house that is no more than 50 miles away. Transporting food and other products for home and farm use is allowed if acquired while completing one of the above mentioned tasks. The good news is that no registration certificate, license plate, or decals are required; therefore, no registration fee or insurance is required.(Virginia Code 46.2-665 through 46.2-673)

WHY DONT YOU MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. THATS WHATS WRONG WITH AMERICA NOW, PEOPLE IN OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS. MAYBE THAT PERSON IN K-MART CANT AFFORD TO PUT TAGS ON THEIR VEHICLE. MAYBE THEY HAVE A BIG FAMILY TO TAKE CARE OF AND K-MART IS WHERE THEY GOT A JOB TO DO THAT AT. AND MAYBE JUST MAYBE THEY ARE MINDING THEIR OWN BUSINESS AND TAKING CARE OF A FAMILY THAT IS STRUGGLING. GO CHECK IN YOUR OWN LIFE AT WHATS WRONG AND LEAVE THE K-MART SHOPPER ALONE.

I'm sure there are several English teachers in your past who threw their hands up in disgust! I have to agree that your neighbor sounds like a bum but really, your neighbor wasn't the issue in the first place. The issue was that there's frequently a truck parked outside a Kmart store in VA that has "farm use" tags. There are laws that state you can drive a "farm use vehicle" within 30 miles of your farm for the purpose of maintaining the operation of the farm and that you can run personal errands at the same time. I completely agree that THIS is a prime example of what is wrong with America today. This whining over who's getting away with what and the "it's not fair" mentality is ruining this country... they're called entitlement issues, get over them already! Too much attention is being paid to this sort of thing and not enough attention is being given to our educational system; as is evidenced by some of the asinine replies. WHO CARES WHY THERE'S A FARM USE TAG ON A TRUCK PARKED IN FRONT OF KMART?!?

I have farm use tags on my truck, I also have insurance on my farm truck, I also have a farm! The farm use tags are for people who actually have farms. I realize there are many people using farm use tags who do not have a farm, but personally it doesn't matter to me. This country has many more issues that I believe are much more important that someone using farm use tags illegally. My 2 cents!

my trailers were parked next to my house and a truck with "farm use" tags skidded 150 feet and hit my trailers and did considerable damage. guess what they do not have insurance! If my trailers had not been there they would have gone thru my house!!! I get to pay for the repairs now!!! Get insurance on all vehicles!!!

Some "farmers" in this area are terrible people. They hide behind the good old farmer mentality to get by with a lot of bad stuff.
