The verb "require" in this sentence from a web page strikes me as unusual.
All cars require a $5 GA State Park Pass.
My understanding is that it is the law/regulation that requires a pass of cars. I thought the sentence should read:
A $5 GA State Park Pass is required of all cars.
All cars need a $5 GA State Park Pass.
While the meaning of the original sentence is crystal clear to me, I am wondering if its usage of require is a rare case or the author's peculiarity. Require appears to take on the meaning of "need" in that sentence. I have checked several dictionaries and can't find an example similar to that sentence. Although there is the definition of "to demand as necessary or essential : have a compelling need for" on M-W, it doesn't seem to fit in the context I am asking about.
