KTMrad, please let us know what's up with the rumored "suspension" of the CA sticker program. My local Forestry advises that red sticker restrictions are lifted this summer.

Sounds like good news on its face, but I'm concerned that longer term, this is not good.

Thanks

Here's the response I received from the D-36 Leg. Action Officer:

Jim
What has happened is that there is a reluctance to try and enforce the Red
Sticker seasons due to the inability of DMV to sort everybody out correctly.
Probably more people have gotten Green Stickers than the Red Stickers they
were supposed to be issued. Due to this arbitrary system, courts are
reluctant to prosecute someone for doing something an identical bike, save
for the color of the sticker, is allowed to do. Because of this, most
agencies are letting everybody ride anytime. Without teeth behind the
rule, it is unlikely that anyone will be cited, even if the agency prefers
to try and enforce the rule.

Some day, DMV will probably get their act together so that the VIN numbers
will be computer sorted for Red/Green determination. Until then, thank
goodness for poorly run bureaucracies.
