Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Department of Motor Vehicles will likely stop sending registration renewal notices next month, but it still plans to make use of the postal system.

The department said today it will mail 85,000 letters to owners of hybrid vehicles, warning them that they will no longer be able to use carpool lanes as of July. Early adopters of hybrid vehicles received yellow stickers granting them special access to those lanes.

Under legislation passed last year, DMV will create a new sticker by 2012 for 40,000 vehicles that meet stricter emissions criteria than many current hybrid cars.
