As we all know, there’s only two real options: Vote yes or vote no. If you “skip it,” you have no say in the matter.
And it looks like not everyone agrees that voters should “skip it.” The AAA of Southern New England announced Monday that it is advising people to vote yes on the measure, arguing the coalition’s compromise bill doesn’t fully protect consumers.
“Your vehicle produces valuable information about its health and condition. AAA thinks you should own this information, all of it, and should be free to share it as you see fit,” said the AAA chapter’s president, Mark Shaw.
For voters, it comes down to two choices: Do you believe that the compromise is sufficient? If so, vote no — that’s the only way to ensure that the compromise law takes precedence. If you agree with the AAA and think the compromise doesn’t go far enough, vote yes.
Whatever you do, you shouldn’t take the coalition’s dunderhead advice to “skip it.” That’s bad advice that accomplishes nothing.
