The Farrahtuhsh Society is arguing that a free individual has the right to travel upon the public roads, highways, and interstates free and unmolested without having to be licensed because you are not making money. The Farrahtuhsh Society is also arguing that if you are making money, then you are driving.
On the other hand The State of Oreconsin is arguing that without licensing, you wouldn't be able to determine who is able to control their vehicle or conveyance safely. The State of Oreconsin is also arguing that the definition of a commercial vehicle is one that can be 8000 pounds or heavier. Other definitions of commercial are listed in the Oreconsin Motor Vehicles handbook and under Oreconsin State Statutes.
