Here's one reason for leaving California. If you have a commercial diesel operated vehicle or equipment 2009 or older you can no longer register or operate in the state of California. It is now obsolete. Slideback wreckers,big rigs, large tractors,bulldozers, busses,etc. I've seen perfect running diesel city busses drive into scrap yards and be destroyed. Running D-9 catapillars driven off trailer to be scrapped! I have a scrap friend who cuts up perfectly good working large John Deere/new holland/ tractors. Has to punch holes in blocks to be verified as destroyed. Slide back wreckers/big rigs being sold out of state cheaply. Small time trucking businesses being run out by larger outfits who can afford new compliance trucks. I heard stories of bulldozer operators who were willing to cut fire lines during the past years out of control wildfires and were told not to because of non emission compliant dozers.?!?!? Needless to say there was a severe shortage needed dozers recently. Go figure. No joke. Check this out. https://www.freightwaves.com/news/c...comply with the diesel pollution requirements.
