New Law Unsecured loads on vehicles

Unsafe, unsecured loads on vehicles – The law requires the DMV to include at least one question addressing laws on driving with an unsafe, unsecured load in at least 20 percent of the knowledge tests.

In an effort to make the roads safer from unsecured items like buckets and ladders that can be hazardous when they fall off vehicles and land on the road, and to increase drivers’ awareness of this problem, at least one in five applicants seeking to get a driver’s license will have to know about unsecured loads and safety issues when they take their knowledge test from the DMV. That’s because another new law says the DMV has to include a question about these unsecured load-related laws on at least 20 percent of the driver’s license tests.

The DMV is also reminding drivers of low-emission an transitional zero-emission vehicles that their green or white decals granting them access to HOV lanes expires January 1, 2019. Vehicles issued a green or white decal between January 1, 2017 and March 1, 2018 are eligible to apply for a red decal that grants them access to HOV lanes through January 1, 2022. The DMV plans to issue light purple decals in 2019 that will grant access to HOV lanes through January 1, 2023. Those eligible include drivers who haven’t applied for or received a consumer rebate pursuant to the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, unless they meet annual income requirements.
