CHP Asks Residents to Turn in Drivers with Out-of-State Plates
Posted July 8th, 2014 @ 8:29am by KFBK News - James Rojas

The California Highway Patrol is asking for the public's help to catch car registration cheaters. 

A new program on the CHP's website is allowing people to anonymously report drivers who have lived in the state for years, but still have their car registered in another state.

The program is called Californians Help Eliminate All The Evasive Registration Scofflaws -- or CHEATERS for short. 

The CHP says cheating costs the state millions in dollars in registration fees and helps people bypass the state's smog control regulations.

In California, drivers have 20 days to change their registration after moving to the state.
