New Driving Traffic Laws for 2024: What You Need to Know

The California Highway Patrol recently announced a set of new traffic safety laws, signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, that will take effect on January 1, 2024. Staying informed about these changes is crucial, not only for your safety but also for understanding your rights in case of accidents. Here’s a breakdown of some key amendments:

AB 256: Vehicle Registration Update

Starting July 1, 2024, changes to vehicle registration requirements will impact drivers. Current month and year tabs on the rear license plate remain essential, but a violation of vehicle registration won’t be the sole basis for enforcement until the second month after registration expiration. Late registration fees still apply.

AB 925: Vehicle Removal

Law enforcement must now verify the lack of current vehicle registration with the DMV before towing a vehicle for registration expired beyond six months. Vehicles cannot be towed if the officer lacks immediate access to these records.

AB 413: Enhanced Crosswalk Visibility

Parking or stopping a vehicle within 20 feet of a marked crosswalk or 15 feet of a crosswalk with a curb extension is now prohibited. This regulation aims to increase visibility and safety at crosswalks.

AB 436: Changes to Cruising Laws

City and county authority to regulate cruising have been removed, and “low rider” vehicles are now allowed to cruise streets by eliminating height restrictions on lowered vehicles.

AB 641: Catalytic Converter Regulations

New regulations redefine automobile dismantlers and impose penalties for illegal activity. Repair shops and legitimate entities are excluded from penalties. It is now illegal to remove a Vehicle Identification Number from a catalytic converter or possess three or more converters with removed VIN markings.

SB 55: Catalytic Converter Engraving

Motor vehicle dealers must engrave or etch the catalytic converter with the VIN number before selling a new or used truck or car.

SB 88: Safety Requirements for Pupil Transportation

Drivers providing pupil transportation for compensation must meet certain safety requirements.

SB 775: Zero-Emission School Buses

School districts and educational agencies using zero-emission school buses are authorized to place signage on the rear of the bus, identifying it as a clean air zero-emission bus.
