29 Mar - Progress...
Mar 30, 2017 — CHP has spoken... the wording of this is not 'perfect' but it will do for now. It is a big step in the right direction to "continue the conversation" and be part of the solution.
It is NOT a material change to the law. It may or may not get to all law enforcement agencies/officers, but we're at little or less risk around CHP. If you choose to print and carry a copy of this (link below) in-vehicle with the intent of sharing it with an officer who stops you to avoid citation - don't force the issue, be VERY polite, ask if they are aware of CHP's memo about this, offer to show them a copy. May or may not help.
"For the purposes of Section 23123.5(f) CVC, a radio installed and mounted in a vehicle with a wired hand microphone (e.g., business band or citizen band [CB]radio) is not considered a wireless communication device, nor is it considered a specialized mobile radio device, and therefore is not subject to enforcement under this section."
We still need to get the law changed AND passed.
