Q. Is it illegal to drive without a bumper cover in Juneau?


Dear Juneau Resident,

You do need to have a bumper and I am not sure what you mean by a bumper cover. If the plastic covering is broken but the bumper is structurally sound it would be okay to use the bumper. I would need some more details or you could have an officer look at the bumper.

Just as an aside, there has been quite a bit of research on bumpers in the last year because a Juneau resident wanted to make a wooden bumper. This actually is not allowed, a vehicle has to have a bumper designed for that type of vehicle and that meets safety specs. Now if you build a specialty vehicle, like a car completely from wood, and get it approved for road use then the bumper could be wood.
