Let’s dig a little deeper

Because 11.3% of vehicle registration accounts, worth an estimated $425 million, become delinquent - every year.

The CHP cites the most common reasons for vehicles not being properly registered as:

  1. Owners are unaware of the registration laws in California
  2. Owners are evading paying taxes and registration fees
  3. Their vehicle fails to meet the State air pollution standards
  4. Their automobile is uninsured (According to the Insurance Information Institute - One in six uninsured)

Two more culprits adding to this loss include:

  1. Out-of-state vehicles not registering their vehicle when relocating to California
  2. PNO (planned non-operational) vehicles are still illegally on the road

Our purpose-built app captures photographic proof of expired plates on the road.

The date, time, and location are stamped on the image.

The overnight process extracts:

  • License plate number
  • Year and month of tabs
  • Color, make and model of vehicle
  • Physical location/address of where the image was taken
  • Days delinquent
  • Unclear images and unexpired plates are filtered out
  • Plates that have been previously reported are omitted from the daily report

These data are used to generate a notice similar to a toll bridge violation.

Every year, more than one in ten registrations becomes delinquent worth an estimated four hundred and twenty-five million dollars.
This is according to seasoned Sacramento tax attorney, *Steve Sims*.
Now add to this, vehicles claiming Planned Non Operational status whilst still illegally on the road, and the number becomes substantially larger.
What if we helped recoup fifty million dollars from this loss in the first year?

Underlined Text shows example when clicked. an *Underlined Text with Asterisks* opens link in a new browser window.

What’s behind this massive loss is the rampant violation of a *specific vehicle code* which requires current registration tabs to be displayed on the rear license plate. Yes, the Franchise Tax Board does garnish wages from accounts that are more than sixty days delinquent, but every year, two-hundred and thirty-seven million dollars are still missing. This is probably why a stated goal on the DMV website is to have every vehicle properly registered. What if there were an additional arrow in the DMV quiver to target this goal?

The program, now known as *CHP REG*, already allows people a method to report out-of-state registration violators. And despite having a cumbersome, multi-step process, has helped recover *millions of dollars* over the past decade. With a financial incentive for reporting delinquent tags, just imagine the magnitude of the recoupment. It’s not so far-fetched. *New Yorkers* are already *financially rewarded* with a share of the fines for *video reporting* idling trucks and buses in violation of the city's *anti-idling laws*. And the *California False Claims Act* enables whistleblowers to be financially rewarded for helping recover government funds. Ready to Weed Out delinquent registrations?

Great! -Tag Snapper is a custom-built mobile phone app that allows users to snap expired license plates from around California.
Each image is stamped with when and where it was snapped.
A tabulated report is generated overnight from all the images that were snapped the previous day.
Only unique plates are reported.
So if an expired plate is photographed a second or third time, only the first instance is reported to the DMV.
In addition to all information requested by the CHP REG program, the month and year on the plate and the minimum number of days delinquent are also included.
A notice, similar to a toll bridge crossing, is sent by the DMV to the registered owner.
With it are specific instructions on what needs to be addressed to resolve the matter.
An additional administration fee is added to any amount due.
It acts like a flick on the forehead.
If you’re ready to weed out delinquent registrations with Tag Snapper, what needs to happen to initiate a pilot program to prove the concept?
