California’s ‘Cheaters’ program starts paying off
California Highway Patrol's crackdown on cheaters who are hurting the state's revenue by skirting its registration requirement has finally started paying off.
The traffic authorities of the state launched a program, Californians Help Eliminate All the Evasive Registration Scofflaws (Cheaters), under which the authorities sought the public's assistance in cracking down on drivers with out-of-state license plates.
So far this year, the program has brought in $1.07 million. CHP officials believe that it will bring in more than $2 million by the end of the year.
Daniel Hill, a spokesperson for CHP, said, "We mostly want to make sure the playing field is level. Drivers who don't register their vehicles in California are using the state's infrastructure and not paying for it."
The program was launched around a decade back in 2004 to detect drivers who do not pay the state's relatively high vehicle fees.
They register their vehicles in other states of the U. S. and than move into California. The Golden state suffers revenue loss to the tune of millions of dollars every year.
The California law states that motorists must get their vehicles registered with the state's traffic department within 20 days after moving into the state.
