    You mean beyond 1/1/2008, the current sunset date for the provision that gives California Clean Air Vehicle stickers to hybrids? That just depends on how our legislators in Sacramento feel in their <strike>heart of hearts</strike> wallet of wallets.

    The Clean Air Vehicle stickers program is enabled by section 5205.5 of the California Vehicle Code. Paragraph (k) of that section reads:

    If the section is allowed to expire, it will affect not only qualifying hybrids but also all other qualifying clean air vehicles (SULEV, ULEV, AND ILEV).

    Just make sure you like the car - with or without the sticker and carpool privilege.

    Fran Pavley who sponsored the original bill for Carpool access in CA is termed out and will leave this year. Someone else has to sponsor another bill and get it through Sacramento...otherwize it will end on 1/1/2008.
    Then we all get to take the stickers off, but no more carpool with one person.

    Write your CA congresspeople........

    I purchased my new Prius in early April, sent in for the stickers, and had the application returned just yesterday saying it wasn't in the system.

    The dealer claims they transmitted the info to DMV, but I cannot seem to find anyone at DMV that can confirm this....does anyone know of a way to retrieve this information (the plate number) so I can get the application completed?

    It has been stated in other threads on this topic that your dealer may be able to look into the DMV database for you to determine your plate number. Otherwise, you can try repeat calls to the phone number on the paperwork that DMV sent to you when it returned your "incomplete" application.

    I am going to share my timeline because I am not sure when to start worrying.

    4/15/06 Bought Prius - decided that day I wanted one. Got the only one of the lot (white)
    4/28/06 Got license number from Dealer - I did not want to risk sending in without
    as of 5/11 - check is not cashed and nothing sent back
    5/13 - leaving the country for the rest of the month. Can't do anything about the sticker from Italy.

    When do I start worrying??

    :unsure:

    11/4/04: Purchased Car
    4/6/06: Applied for FasTrak Transponder
    4/20/06: Received FastTrak Transponder and documentation
    4/26/06: Mailed off HOV sticker Application w/FastTrak Info to DMV
    5/12/06: Check to DMV cleared my bank

    Just waiting for stickers now...

    Why did I wait so long to apply for the stickers? Mostly because my commute doesn't take me on freeways that have HOV lanes. But my wife does use the car from time to time and her commute does go over freeways/bridges that have HOV lanes and it will definitely be of help to her in those circumstances.

    Update:

    5/11/06: Sticker Issued by DMV (per the certificate).
    5/19/06: Received stickers. 058xxx

    (I've been on vacation and haven't been able to post)
