    Check with your local DMV. Most states require you to register your vehicle in 30 days or so after moving there. If someone is using the roads in your area but isn't paying their fair share, that's money out of your pocket (and all your neighbor's pockets). Some people try this to avoid smog testing, and that gets to be a health issue, especially in non-attainment areas.



    MA has a reputation for high insurance rates, so I doubt if avoiding a higher premium is an issue here.



    And it could be that the person just seems to live in NY but lives long enough in MA during the year that MA is their legal residence.

    You really want to be a concerned citizen ?

    1. Put together a box of canned foods and take them down to the local shelter.

    2. Gather up all of those old clothes you were meaning to donate and take them and the food box to the shelter.

    3. Somebody on the street asking for spare change ? Buy them a burger, fries and a drink instead.

    4. Volunteer to help a older gentleman or lady in your neighborhood with a hosehold chore.

    5. Be the Block Captain for a neighborhood watch group.

    6. Take your broom, dust pan and trash bucket out to the street and sweep up the street in font of your house or walk around the neighborhood and pick up trash.

    Surely you can find something constructive to do with your time that is positive and is a benefit to other people.
