That's one party politics in CA. They try to shove something down the throats of the public, the courts get involved, and years down the road a judicial resolution is reached that nobody is happy with. Brilliant!

The governor signed it. It is in the hands of the CHP, who support it and provided input on the bill, to promulgate the regulations

Thanks are owed to Chuck Pederson, President of ABATE chapter 3/13 of Thousand Oaks, for dragging this across the finish line

Up next in the queue is AB 1932, allowing motorcyclists to substitute a motorcycle safety class in place of traffic school. It's awaiting the governor's signature

There is some discussion in CA to come up with a bill to restrict profiling of motorcyclists. People who wear vests from riders organizations are tired of being treated like 1% Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs

I used to work at charity events attended by a large number of the Vagos and the UMFs (ugly m-er f-ers), and they were a little , uh, different. :lol: :lol:
Some of the chicks could beat my ass :shock:

So . . . . the CHP is given de facto power to write the legislation?
Why not have the CHP provide its input to the legislature and governor?
Answer - so the pols don't have to take the heat when the "regs" turn out to be obnoxious.
Let the faceless unaccountable bureaucrats at CHP do the dirty work

Why not leave it the way it was - no law against it?

It ain't broke, don't fix it.

Now we have to worry about the interpretations of the CHP?
And, if the regs start out OK, then next year? or ten years from now?
And, the pols' fingers are clean.

Who wrote the checks for ABATE?
I don't know . . . . . maybe . . . insurance companies ?
Would the motorcycle members of ABATE write checks to create a law they don't need?
