I think California is trying to phase these stickers out as soon as possible. After making the stickers as big and ugly as they could and then for some unknown reason requiring you to put three of them on when one would suffice, they found people were still complying and using the HOV lanes. They have since realized that the white ones weren't tacky enough, so they have upped the ante, they made them bright red and now require yet another sticker on the front! I bet they even raised the cost to cover the extra sticker. I think they're trying to find our breaking point where we'll say- "Screw this crap! I'm not putting them on!" and then they can close the program due to lack of participation. :laugh:Yep, received mine today as well. What I found odd are two things different than when I received my white stickers for my 2015 eGolf.
First, California is not currently differentiating between plug-in hybrids and pure EVs - each type now receives the same red decal (as opposed to the old white for EVs and green for plug-ins).
Second, there are now 4 decals instead of the old set of 3. Apparently, now you have to also place one on the front of the car.
Given that these stickers are only going to be issued from March of this year until December, not sure why they even needed to make the changes.
