San Diego Businesses – We Thank You!

While the coronavirus is suspending our active lifestyles and challenging many businesses to survive, the city of San Diego is working hard to keep residents and businesses informed and safe. C&M Motors is doing our part on a daily basis as well.

San Diego Businesses Step Up

While the coronavirus took everyone by surprise, leaving us unprepared for the current state of emergency, many local business owners are finding ways to survive. From increasing hand sanitizers to working tirelessly to keep our stores stocked with essentials, companies are stepping up safety and sanitation policies to be able to continue to provide necessary products and services to consumers

Supporting Our Community

We are extremely fortunate to have supermarkets stocked with meat, dairy, and fresh produce. Restaurant owners are re-inventing themselves with exclusively take-out menus. Our local business owners are working hard to raise the bar on sanitation and safety while continuing to bring us the food and essentials we need to be able to shelter-in-place.

CARB Restrictions on Commercial Truck Registration



Commercial trucks registered in California will be subject to new regulations requiring owners that have older trucks in their fleet comply to the new laws or be subject to DMV restrictions.
These measures, designed to reduce greenhouse gasses, will be in affect starting January 1, 2020. The new “health-based requirements” will need to be met before a driver is allowed to register his or her truck through the Department of Motor Vehicles, CARB says. A new enforcement tool used by the DMV beginning in 2020 will automatically block 2010 and older trucks from registration.
Under these regulations, truckers must meet the following compliance schedule. Vehicles weighing more than 26,000 pounds GVWR are considered “Heavier” and trucks between 14,001 and 26,000 pounds are considered “Lighter”

DMV Enforcement

Beginning January 1, 2020, the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Truck and Bus Regulation will be enforced through a new automatic process. Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (SB 1), was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This bill states that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) must check that vehicles are compliant with, or exempt from, CARB’s Truck and Bus Regulation. The new DMV compliance verification process will better enforce the regulation and level the playing field for businesses throughout California.
Vehicles that have met all upgrade requirements or are exempt from heavy-duty diesel regulations in the state will be allowed to register with the DMV. CARB says VIN numbers may be required to ensure your vehicle isn’t mistakenly denied registration.
If a vehicle is not compliant with the rule, DMV can no longer register that vehicle.

C&M Motors Can Help

Many companies are being proactive in their approach to dealing with the coming regulations by upgrading older vehicles in their fleet sooner than later. The market could be flooded with older, out of compliance trucks as the deadline gest closer. These new regulations can be confusing. C&M Motors is prepared to answer any questions you might have about the new laws and help you decide which upgrades will benefit your business. We have a large selection of new Hino trucks available which can be made to serve a wide range of industries. Give us a call and let us help you be prepared. And remember to ask about the all new Hino XL Series of heavy-duty trucks due out soon. We look forward to hearing from you.
