California law requires dealerships to display a prop 65 sticker on every car in their lot. Although most establishments are aware that it’s a requirement, many don’t realize why.
Here’s why it’s important to display a proposition 65 safety window sticker on your vehicles:
Safety Window Sticker Warns Against Harmful Chemicals
Proposition 65 warns potential buyers and anyone coming in contact with the vehicles that they could be exposed to harmful chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. This list of more than 900 chemicals has been accumulated since 1987 and is updated at least once a year.
The chemicals listed on the prop 65 list includes a number of naturally occurring and synthetic materials often used in manufacturing. They can also be the derivative of chemical processes, as is the case with motor vehicle exhaust.
Prop 65 Sticker Enforcement
Any number of sources can file lawsuits against a business if it's in violation of this law, but the California Attorney General’s Office is the primary enforcer. Private citizens, law firms and other individuals have filed lawsuits against establishments not in compliance with prop 65.
Failing to provide notices in the form of a sticker on your vehicles can result in fines as high as $2,500 per violation, per day— if you question whether any of the vehicles in your lot are within compliance, it’s essential to follow up before you’re penalized.
