CHP program catches owners who fail to register vehicles
Bee Staff

The California Highway Patrol said Thursday that its program to catch people who fail to register their vehicles in-state had its most successful year in 2008, bringing $1 million.

The CHP's "CHEATERS" (Californians Help Eliminate All The Evasive Registration Scofflaws) program has helped return more than $4 million to the state since the program's inception five years ago, the CHP said in a news release.

"Every year, the state loses millions of dollars in revenue from California residents who unlawfully register their vehicles in other states or countries," said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow

State law requires an owner to register their vehicle within 20 days of accepting employment or establishing residency in California. Failure to comply with the law will result in penalties.

Anyone who spots an out-of-state license plate can report it anonymously to the CHP's website (www.chp.ca.gov). The following information is needed:

-The state that issued the plate.

-License plate number.

-Date and time observed.

-Where it was observed.

-Make, model and color of vehicle.

-Any additional comments (decals, license plate frames, bumper stickers, for example).

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.

"These violators are in California using our services, but not paying their fair share of the costs," Farrow said.

i don't see why this is bad whatsoever. it's not violating anyone's rights, but rather, catching cheaters.

only idiots don't gear up when they ride. yes it's a personal choice, but i don't need to see carnage on the roadway when it could be prevented.

I had out of state plates for a year before I could pass smog. The stickers on the plates were EXPIRED for 5 months of that time. I had paid registration in Cali, but couldn't get the stickers until I passed smog. Nobody bothered me. Cops didn't even notice because they don't know what color stickers a MD plate is supposed to have. I probably could have kept them forever. Car was daily driven.

Sorry, Cali. I paid every penny on registration, though, but you wouldn't have known from my plates.

You could've rocked the awesome temp tag (those numbered red squares taped to your back window).

I just think it's retarded to have to pay for registration in another state, then pay AGAIN in California, even though it's still valid in another state. When it comes time for renewal, then pay good ol' CA DMV.

FWIW, I had a buddy buy a car from AZ. It came with a 90 day temp AZ registration. At the end of the 90 days, he went to register it at the CA DMV. He told the DMV that he bought it 80 days ago. The DMV wanted him to pay a penalty. The DMV clerk told my buddy to write down last week's date on the transfer papers to avoid the penalty

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........

....why impound? Park it until you can get a temp tag or are able to pay registration.

If it's parked on a public road with expired registration they can impound it.

....is that his situation? If so, you're right and he's out of luck I guess. In fact, in some counties you can't even have it parked in your driveway with expired tags but there is less chance of being popped.

Are you high? I want to be registered outta the damn state so that I can run without a damn front plate... Its not catching cheaters its bothering people, more specifically people who are already registered out of the state and then dont want to "double up" on registration dues.... think about it.
(And yes I fully agree with you on the helmet laws)

....if you are a resident using California roads, services, etc., it's only fair that you pay into the system as everyone else does. Otherwise you're just living off the backs of others. ....think about it.

....and just to clarify, my beef earlier was with the "1984" tactics (not with the actual enforcement of the law).
