well that technically is impossible because i would split along the San Andreas Fault and it is on a Transform/Transverse Boundary, it would have to be a Divergent Boundary
so in like 100 million years San Francisco will just be a division of L.A. and in about another 100 million L.A. will be part or oregon

California Expands Crackdown on Modified Cars
The California agency issued $4.4 million in local grants for a modified car ticketing campaign that generates more than $10 million in revenue for the state. The California Office of Traffic Safety issued $4.4 million in grants last Friday to three law enforcement agencies to fund an ongoing crackdown on vehicles with "illegal" modifications. The Highway Patrol (CHP) received the largest of the grants at $2,980,587. Ontario police collected $620,000 and Irwindale police $321,044. The grants are designed to fund training and support for efforts to reduce illegal street racing. In practice, the effort has focused on issuing traffic citations to owners of modified cars with the state government collecting far more in citation revenue than has been handed out in grants.
Here's a positive thing the Irwindale Police are involved with http://www.irwindalespeedway.com/dra...te/ticket.html

Man... this sh!t sucks donkey balls!!

Everyone has a right to make their car their own, just because they have 500+ ponies waiting to brake loose doesn't mean they're going to race around everywhere.... and if they want to crack down on "illegal" mods then, they need to get people who know what they're looking at to inspect the cars.

Bloody GOV's!!! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

Yeah California laws suck balls. I hate not being able to black out my tail lights even when you would still be able to see my brake lights perfectly from a mile away with the black outs on!

Nah.

If we didn't want it posted in, we'd close it...

So why punish people for that. Just close it.

Yep, This State Sucks....it's rained about 10 days since last summer & 3 of those days I actually needed a jacket, & I almost had to wear long pants this year. Even my stupid job lets me wear shorts. The weather here is soooo bad, I might have to wear long pants 3 or 4 hours this year....sob....i can't go on.....

Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Blizzards, White outs, Flooding, Freezing rain, then Heat & Humidity & Bugs in the Summertime...I can't take it anymo.....oh....that's you guys....never mind.....I'll settle for a little rumble now & then, I have for my whole life, no big deal.
I just want to make sure I go out in one of MY Cars !

I asked my lawyer about being pulled over and having the officer ask to pop my hood because he/she suspects my car is modified..Lawyer told to refuse the search when asked unless they get a warrant.

All I can say is REALLY???

Are you telling me that California has cornered the market on stupid politicians, or bad policy? I thought this site and forum was about bringing people together around a common passion, not reverting to school-yard name calling. Can we all agree that this is a stupid policy and move on, or better yet, focus on way to constructively voice our opposition?
