Allow year round operation of Red Sticker OHV's

Initially when OHV's were registered they were granted a Green Sticker which was proof of registration for that year. Introduced later were Red Stickers. Many OHV's today, when registered at the DMV are granted a Red Sticker instead of a Green Sticker. 


What is a Red Sticker?
A Red Sticker is similar to the Green Sticker except that vehicles with Red Stickers are restricted to riding seasons regulated the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The Red Sticker is required only for motorcycles and ATVs model year 2003 and newer that are certified by the manufacturer as not meeting the exhaust emission standards established by CARB. If the vehicle has a 3 or a C in the eighth digit of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), it is non-compliant with CARB exhaust emission standards and is issued a Red Sticker by DMV. Non-compliant OHVs cannot be modified to meet the exhaust emissions standard because the regulation is enforced at the manufacturer level, not the consumer level.


There seem's to be no rhyme or reason for granting a bike a red sticker versus a green sticker. I am proposing we eliminate this useless law and permit OHV's to all be granted a Green Sticker when registered at the DMV and allow for year round OHV use.
