THE DRIVING FORCE: NON-OP BILL IN CALIFORNIA

By Contributing Editor BRIAN CAULDILL

A bill (A.B. 789) has been introduced in the California Assembly that exempts vehicles having a certification of nonoperation on file with the DMV from city and county public nuisance ordinances. The vehicle would have to be stored or parked in a legal manner on private property and not readily visible from the street.

We Urge You to Contact Your State Legislators to Support A.B. 789 * A.B. 789 provides safeguards for hobbyists to work on collector vehicles on private property.

* A.B. 789 establishes reasonable provisions that vehicles be properly parked and located out of ordinary public view, which can generally be achieved by means of inside storage, fencing, trees, shrubbery, etc

. * A.B. 789 allows collectors to maintain wrecked, dismantled or inoperative vehicles and their parts on private property.

* A.B. 789 demonstrates a real effort by legislators and hobbyists to enact reasonable and fair compromise legislation.

Contact your own state legislators in Sacramento immediately by phone, fax or e-mail to support this legislation. If you need assistance in determining who your legislators are and their contact information, please contact the California State Legislature's General Information Line at 916/445-4311. This information can also be obtained by calling the SEMA Washington, D.C. office at 202/783-6007 ext. 39 or via the Internet at www.enjoythedrive.com/leg...slator.asp . Please be certain to include your name and address on your correspondence.
