Post by: jd8420 on January 19, 2018, 07:55:09 PM
I hope I am reading this wrong. What does this mean? I sure am glad I don't live there and feel sorry for the people who do.

Wow...doesn't look good. I was born in that stupid state but my parents moved to NY (just as bad).

California won't comply with federal law so anybody that lives in California should begin to ignore California laws if they don't like them???. 

They'll put you in jail just for being a Conservative.

If you get stopped by the police...just tell them you are an illegal alien and they'll cut you loose. 

I'll have to pass this on info on.

Interesting.  My registration says something like 14000 gvwr but operating as less than.  Something about I would have to carry a log book and do inspections because it would fall under class A license? 

Yeah I really detest the lawmakers here in Cali.

Maybe Cali is different but most states only require an A license when your trailer exceeds 10,000lbs. C license for anything up to 26,000lbs gross and trailer not grossing more than 10,000lbs, class B for anything over 26,000 with trailer not grossing more than 10,000lbs. Class A is any vehicle with a trailer grossing more than 10,000lbs. So you should all set Mr Diablo
