"Anyone who spots an out-of-state license plate can report it anonymously to the CHP's website ( The following information is needed:"

"Once the information is submitted, it is automatically fed into the "CHEATERS" database. If there is enough information to prove that the owner or driver of the vehicle is a California resident, a compliance letter will be sent requiring the owner to properly register their vehicle, the release states."
I find it disturbing how the general public is increasingly comfortable anonymously spying and/or reporting others in their community for minor infractions they may feel they are committing. .....and then these folks (innocent or not) are added to a database (incld. a background check or whatever they decide to do with the info)??? Keeping your family/neighborhood safe by reporting crimes is one thing, but if you don't see what road this takes us down........
