To California Owners - I understand that the current white HOV stickers will expire in Jan 2019. However, it's not clear to me whether our cars (particularly those that received stickers prior to 2017) will be eligible for the new HOV stickers (red sticker??). Have any of you taken a look at the new legislation that our crack legislative team up in Sacramento issued a few months ago and tried to make sense of it? I have read it, and for the life of me, can't figure it out. And, I've done a bit of trolling on other forums (even, heaven forbid, Tesla forums!!), and there seems to be confusion there as well.
I will say that HOV lane usage is one of the big reasons I have my FFE, and if that privilege were revoked, I would almost certainly get rid of my car. But, I'd prefer to hold off on doing that, as I see a whole bunch of new EVs coming out in the next 24 months or so, and would like to have a larger selection of vehicles to choose from when it comes time to get rid of the FFE.
