Multiple industry articles have stated that proposed changes to CARB's low-use exemption will mean that out of state vehicles will be able to travel up to 5,000-7,500 miles in California without coming into compliance with CARB's Truck and Bus Rule.
This may not be the case. CTA Staff has learned that these changes may apply to total miles, not just miles traveled in California. We would urge the industry to wait for CARB's official advisory prior to making compliance decisions. We expect this advisory to be released this week.
UPDATE (1:50PM PST, 11/11/13)): CTA staff has confirmed that the 5,000 mile proposal will apply to total truck miles, not just miles driven in California.
