Unlike most programs, however, in this case the snitch isn't even offered a payoff, at least not one mentioned on the CHP website. The only motivation is for the state to collect more revenue. On their website, the CHP pleads to the public about the "millions of dollars a year in revenue" they lose from people who don't pay their mandatory license tag fees. Residents are urged to send the CHP a plethora of personal information about the person they're snitching on, including "State or province in which vehicle is registered, Vehicle license number, Date and time the vehicle was observed, Make, model and color of the vehicle, Location where the vehicle was observed (street(s) and city), Any additional comments and descriptive information." The list continues "Comments-Evidence: Please include in the comments field any relevant information that might help with the investigation: specific addresses where the vehicle is observed, how long has the vehicle been seen in California, any information about the owner, why you feel that the owner is attempting to avoid California registration, local decals/bumper stickers/license plate frames, etc."
Five years after they "invited Californians to join the fight against out-of-state registration," the CHP boasted that the program netted more than $1 million a year in "fees collected from violators."
In 2003, CA State Senator Tom McClintock proposed a state Constitutional Amendment which would have abolished the car registration fees altogether, if placed on the ballot and passed by voters. McClintock, who was running for governor against Arnold Schwarzenegger at the time, argued that the public should not be forced to pay a tax on their own automobile, which is a necessity of life.
The L.A. Times reported on the matter at the time (here and here,) and McClintock pointed out in a 1998 column that he wasn't alone in his quest to abolish the car tax. George W. Bush's Democratic opponent for governor Garry Mauro proposed abolishing the car tax, and Governor Jim Gilmore of Virginia promoted the idea as well. McClintock noted "As Governor Gilmore crafts his first budget, he has recognized the Virginia car tax as 'a burden on people's ability to get to and from work, to take care of their parents, to take care of their children, to go to the grocery store and to live their daily lives.'" Gilmore did reduce the registration fees substancially, but never abolished them entirely.
I wholeheartedly supported McClintock's car-tax measure at the time, and passed around the initiative for people to sign. I even went to the DMV once to get people to sign it, but was told by a guard that petitions were not allowed to be circulated on government property unless I get written permission from the California Highway Patrol. Go figure. McClintock's website for the initiative was NoCarTax.com, and it was a revolutionary proposal which would have saved Californians at least hundreds of dollars every year. The notion to abolish a tax as completely unnecessary and burdensome is almost unheard of these days. Shockingly, McClintock's ballot measure never even made it to the ballot, as not enough Californians were aware of the matter or agreed with abolishing the car tax. McClintock, incidentally, later went on to become a U.S. Congressman and holds the distinction of being the only politician that Mel Gibson has ever endorsed.
It's a shame that the state spends money on such programs as 'CHEATERS.' The only reason that the state receives mass compliance for car tags is because of the threat of force. The people face the threat of impound or jail for failing to pay their ransom. If a car doesn't have tags, the state will impound the individuals vehicle right out from under them, leaving them standing on the streetcorner. So a mass resistance to oppressive taxation or government regulation would not necessarily do the trick. The masses can gripe all they want about the government, but what it comes down to is force and the threat of force against each individual; locking you up in a cage and stealing your hard-earned assets. This is a very personal proposition, and it is why the masses so obediently and orderly line up in compliance to an oppressive state. The least they can do is refuse to snitch on their neighbors.
