is it illegal in Ohio to have a nitous system on the street? I have heard its ok as long as the valve is off, the bottle is empty, or the line to the bottle is disconnected.
I just called Ohio State Highway Patrol and the cop I talked to was a dick from the second he got on the phone. He said NO its illegal to have it on the car. I said what if the bottle is empty or disconnected he said its still illegal and why in the hell do you want to run nitrous on a street car? I said because I run it on the track as well. Now I'm skeptical because cops dont always know the actual laws either but I was curious what they would say.
I don't see how their would be a HazMat issue now that I think about it. The law requiring you to have a HazMat endorsement on your license, and signs and paperwork, is anything over 1,000lbs.I know here (VA) I was told you had to have a sign saying you have hazardous materials on the car.
I had a state trooper tell me that one night. We had my car on a trailer. The cop ran my plate, which came back expired. (I had changed the year on the tag). So they checked the vin, which didnt match the registration. They were like "what the hell are you doing"? I explaned that I ran in a class requiring tags and such. I had wrecked the car and transfered the running gear to another car. All I said was the truth, we had stopped at a closed gas station on our way home from the track to use there drink machine. He may have been telling me that cause he thought we were gonna street race, I dont know.I don't see how their would be a HazMat issue now that I think about it.
