Public employment roundup

  • The state of California uses (or used to use) a similar trick to that employed by some unions. If you registered a motor vehicle for one year, they would automatically reregister for the next year and and demand that you pay the fee (which was in the hundreds of dollars). You could not avoid paying the fee once they had done this, even if you did not wish to register the vehicle that year. You could not cancel the registration and get a pro-rated refund. In order to deregister a vehicle, you had to notify them in writing prior to the expiration of the registration for the current year.
