I almost forgot to tell you all that as of January 1st of this year’s assholes can no longer hide. The California Vehicle Code (section 1685) now requires all new vehicles sold in the state to be issues two temporary license plates which must be attached to the vehicle at the time of sale. The same also applies to used to vehicles which do not already have license plates.
How California has allowed such a terrible idea (no temp plates) to exist for so long is beyond me. Prior to AB 516 being passed the California Vehicle Code allowed motorists to drive without plates on their new car for 90 days. But millions* of people ignored this and drove around with their paper plates for years. If you drive around on our shit roads for a while you’ll see many a sun damaged paper plate.
But no longer. MUWAHAHAHAHHAHA!
