Hell, he said we could stop importing oil if we kept our tires inflated.
I must be overlooking that magic button in my 1996 Explorer. Please tell me where to find it.
This is so far beyond stupidity, they've simply GOT to know that the result will to be higher fuel consumption, which, IMO, is the plan. It raises revenue for their political benefactors.
This crap reminds me of Wisconsin.. You cannot buy A/C refrigerant for your car unless you are a licensed professional.. no, not talking about the CFC based stuff, I’m talking the current non ozone depleting stuff...
Why?? Its WISCONSIN its freezing cold 6 months of the year, but you know some fool might give himself frostbite handling refrigerant.
I didn’t read it the way you are. Regardless, I was trying to figure out who actually enforces this thing. By reference, the reg took me to the H&S code which says CARB is the state board responsible for enforcment. So, will we now have the Emissions Police?
But... all of this does fall under “CALIFORNIA GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTIONS ACT OF 2006” which would be suspended if Prop 23 passes. Let us hope...
Next action: RESCIND AB32.
...and penalties can be assessed for each DAY of the alleged infraction, all for the farce of global warming.
And was it the politically preferred form of sex?
“Can they check my cars tire pressure any way other than actual, hands on?”
Maine-iac7! Guess you haven’t heard the news! Obama’s latest stimulus plan! He’s creating a new government agency, The Department of Hot Air, 50,000 union employees receiving top pay and benefits, reason being, these are highly skilled positions as ability to read a tire guage is a requirement. Anyway, you will see one of these DHA agents in your drive way soon checking the tire pressure on your 91 Buick. Oh, btw, these will be armed agents. So, don’t mess with them or they’ll shoot out your tires...
Not any time soon. They’ve been voting for it for decades.
Ping over here too.
We're all illegal aliens now anyway, as the leadership of the country our forefathers fought and died for has been usurped by a foreign interloper and his domestic band of traitors.
Coming soon will be getting a ticket if your tires are low.
It’s about the money, dude.
I’ll be the little great granny - sitting on the stoop - also armed
I think the final draft amends this to only allow you a certain number of breaths in your lifetime. Once you've reached that number, you have to quit breathing.
And of course you're going to be taxed on breathing. The state needs the money.
It,potentially, will keep running for as long as I'll need a car - (I'm officially an antique, myself, this year.)
I drive a 96 Lincoln and won't part with it. Even have an electric cart for my handicapped wife in the trunk. Has everything I need in an automobile.
You and I have cars that require hands-on pressure checks. My daughter bought a new Honda recently. It has automatic tire pressure checks. Big deal. I prefer to do my own gauging, thanks.
And I have reached antique status also. :)
I am driving an old car with 318k miles on it. I am NOT going to buy a new car with all that crap on it. This tire pressure thing is nothing more than a fund raiser for the out-of-control spending perpetrated on us by the CA legislature.
How about putting 110 lbs in before you take it to the government inspection station so it blows up in their faces. Another thing you can do is stick a BB in the valve stem.
they plan on whittling us down fast with their health care bill...
trouble will be old fogies like me: I am in much better health than I”m ‘supposed’ to be - or would be, if I took all the prescripts they give me. I only take one - it's cheap and benign.
I take the natural supplements and vitamins - etc. - and live surrounded by forest - good air, sunshine, etc. I might freeze to death though, if I can't dig the wood out when the ice and snow get too high. ‘bama’s getting ready to flip the switch on the “Smart Grid’ so’s he can determine how much oil we use. “You can't HAVE your thermostat on 72!”
I remember when he said that - one of the BIG clues, before election, of his socialism. (I haven't run my heat at 72 for years. But it ain't up to him to decide.)
I still have the belief that we will beat this latest horde back again - for a few decades, at least. The silent majority is silent no more.
On my car the selector buttons are on the left end of the dash. I scrool to tire pressures and the readout shows front and read. On your Ford, who knows? :-)
“I have OnStar on my truck and get a diagnostics report by email once per month which includes psi on all four tires. So, the technology is available to monitor tire pressure as well as other attributes such as emissions. It’s all about the money and controlling other peoples lives.”
“I am driving an old car with 318k miles on it. I am NOT going to buy a new car with all that crap on it. This tire pressure thing is nothing more than a fund raiser for the out-of-control spending perpetrated on us by the CA legislature.”
I am not a proponent of what the good state of California is up to. I was merely pointing out that the technology is in place for them to monitor tire psi already. In fact, not sure on this, I believe all new cars now have this feature. So, as new autos come on line and old autos are scrapped, the pool will continue to get bigger. Hang in there with your 318k car - I’m impressed - what’s your secret to long car life?
Not on my new Nissan Rogue, strip down model. The fanciest feature I have is AC. I dumped the Saturn Aura with all the OnStar bells and whistles.
Yeah, folks seem right riled up. So we look forward to the mid-term elections.
It was a joking rhetorical question. Those of us driving ancient cars don’t have all the latest bells & whistles.
Oil changes every three thousand miles and a lot of luck!
Sorry, sometimes I can really cut and slash, sometimes my brain is as dense as U-238, or worse.
May this weekend provide what you need.
Oh yeah, I just bought a 1988 Ford Ranger. I am going to try to get rid of all electronic ignition systems on it.
It really is kinda frightening isn’t it.
Everything we do is monitored in some shape or form.
I wish I could head for the deepest forests...
After living around the county for decades, I finally came back to my home state - and FINALLY bought a house in the woods. I should've done it many years before I did.
My little abode is surrounded by forest - but it's still not far enough 'out' for me.
I grew up further 'up north' in my state - lotsa bear and moose, few people then. Fewer now. I would be very content to go back up there and dig in for the duration...I'd like to at least have a good hunk of land with plenty of 'fire wood' to leave my kids/grandkids. If you have a hunk of land, trees for firewood, and water - you can survive. And we are tottering on the fence as a free society. Hope we fall the right way. No matter what, a hunk of land is better than stocks and bonds or 401K's (in the meantime, I'm 'hoarding' REAL light bulbs ;o)...)
