I understand that the OHMVR division may do a study on the possibilities of a mounting plate, as this could help solve a lot of problems caused by illegal riding.
The study has already been done by the DMV. A complete report on the study was presented at the Feb, 2010, OHMVR Commission meeting.
From a link for the meetings agenda ( http://ohv.parks.ca.gov/pages/1140/file ... -25-10.pdf
Senate Bill 742 required the DMV, in conjunction with the OHMVR Division, to report back to the legislature regarding recommendations to improve the Identification of off-highway motor vehicles. The report was completed and submitted by DMV by the required date of July 1, 2009. The Division made an effort to have DMV provide an update at the September and November meetings, but due to state budget freezes and travel restrictions, DMV has not been able to present to the OHMVR Commission until now. The report is available on the OHMVR Division website at: http://www.ohv.parks.ca.gov/
Changes in Law:
CVC 38165 (a) required DMV to redesign the green and red stickers to make the identification number the most prominent feature of the indicia and (b) to report back to the legislature after studying other ways to possibly improve the identification of off-highway vehicles.
DMV is currently producing and distributing the newly designed larger identification number indicia format as required by CVC 38165 (a).
The DMV Indicia Study Report submitted to the legislature recommended that no additional changes be made to the OHV identification at this time.
