By 1907 there were enough motorized vehicles on the roads that the first traffic laws were passed, limiting speeds to 18 mph and requiring that autos stop when meeting horse-drawn vehicles. Each vehicle had to be registered in the owner’s home county. The state began collecting license fees for cars in 1915.
