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.
