2015:New Laws for California Motorists

01 January 2015 - 11:58 AM



SB 1077: Road funding. As more fuel-efficient electric and alternatively powered cars take to California’s roads, they are reducing the amount of revenue the state receives in fuel taxes used to build and repair roads and otherwise improve the state’s mass transit system. SB 1077 tasks the California Transportation Commission to create a technical committee that will investigate a road usage charge and a pilot program to potentially charge motorists based on the distance they travel instead of the amount of gasoline purchased. Under the law, the pilot program must be completed by Jan. 1, 2017, and evaluated by June 30, 2018. The Auto Club of Southern California is seeking participation on the committee, and recommends it take into consideration how mileage information will be collected and how it will impact consumer privacy.

AB 32: Carbon emissions. The California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 will enter a new phase in January. Transportation fuel suppliers will be required to participate in the state’s cap and trade program to account for the carbon emissions produced from burning gasoline and diesel fuel sold in the state. Those costs are expected to be passed on to consumers through higher gas and diesel prices. California Air Resources Board spokesman David Clegern estimates the increase will be “no more than 10 cents a gallon, quite possibly less.”

AB 2013: Carpool lane stickers. The state is increasing the number of partial zero-emission vehicles, or PZEVs, that can use high-occupancy vehicle lanes without carrying two or three people per car. AB 2013 increases the number of allowable vehicles from 55,000 to 70,000, including plug-in hybrid vehicles with “green stickers,” such as the Chevrolet Volt, Ford Fusion Energi and Toyota Prius Plug-In. For a list of eligible vehicles, visit the California Air Resources Board website: arb.ca.gov/msprog/carpool/carpool.htm

AB 60: Driver’s licenses: The Department of Motor Vehicles will begin issuing original driver’s licenses to undocumented Californians who cannot prove legal residence in the United States but can prove their identity and California residency. The application process involves driver education and passage of a vision test, written test and road sign test, as well as submitting a thumb print, having their picture taken and scheduling a behind-the-wheel driving test.

Later in 2015

AB 2293: Ride sharing. Popular ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft will require their drivers to buy insurance that will cover them when carrying passengers or logging on to the companies’ computer dispatching programs to pick up new riders, according to a law taking effect July 1. The Auto Club supported the law, since most personal auto insurance policies do not cover drivers who ride share using their personal vehicles.
