I brought up an issue with my local NBC channel 4 news about fake / novelty / copies of CA HOV carpool stickers being sold on eBay, Etsy, and at swap meets. Here's a fake example of a set of 4 sold on Etsy for $50: Use of fake / novelty / copy HOV stickers seem to be more common as the latest regulations state only red and purple stickers vehicles for solo drivers. I have seen many cars that obviously are not qualifying vehicles in the HOV lanes sporting fake stickers (no watermark - no reflective background logos). NBC channel 4 news iTeam has contacted me and said this is worthy of a story to present on the news. Is there anyone who would like to be on TV and give an interview along with their vehicle sporting the red or purple HOV stickers ? I have not received my stickers from DMV which is why I would not be the perfect EV/PHEV candidate to be on TV. The news crew will come to your location (home or business), take videos and photos of your car, HOV sticker along with an interviewer. The news van will arrive with the camera person and interviewer. Before it airs they will edit the news story with the fake stickers thrown into your story. Please let me know if you are interested ? Southern California residents encouraged as NBC news is located in Burbank.
