Another law will make it a crime to forge, counterfeit or sell Clean Air Stickers, which are generally found on low-emission vehicles and allow the vehicles to use freeway carpool lanes without adhering to the minimum two-passenger rule.
Other laws that will become effective this year were created to put limitations on drunk driving offenders.
Motorists who were convicted of driving under the influence and are on probation for the offense will be prohibited from driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .01% or more. The new law requires those motorists to take a Preliminary Alcohol Screening test.
If they refuse to take the test or take it and have an blood alcohol level of at least .01%, they will be cited, their California driver’s license will be taken away and suspended and their vehicle will be impounded.
