    I would like magnetic sticker so I can take them off when I'm not using the HOV lanes. Which is most of the time.

    Yes, however you would need to re-adhere it using new adhesive to another layer of XPEL tape.

    You had to put them on right there on the roadside while the patrolman watched? Written warning, verbal warning, or fix-it ticket?

    Usually a fix-it ticket you have to get it signed off by any officer showing that you did it and mail in the fee. They won't make you put it on right there (in my experience).

    That's why I was seeking clarity on what happened to @dennis_d. That's how a fix-it works -- but @dennis_d said "Well, I had to put the sticker on and got a warning." Warning is not a fix-it.

    I don't understand having to put on all four...it's super ugly. They're only needed on right front and on right rear corners.

    I had to apply for new ones recently as my bumper was damaged and is getting replaced. I originally had the white stickers. I got my red stickers about a week ago and the expiration date is 1/1/22.

    Nothing the DMV does makes sense. We want access. We play by the rules.

    Cool. Basically says the reds are good till 2022 and somehow someway. We all should get replacement cards that will show a 2022 expiration.

    Now i wonder how they will handle those who apply in 2019 and expire in 2023?

    Another color? Rainbow colors all over the HOV?

    Because not all Teslas can use the HOV lane. Only the ones who have applied for the CAV decals and paid the fee.

    And no, not every Tesla may qualify based on the following:

    Although the FAQ says battery vehicle and over income limit says CAV only and no rebate. Shrug.

    + 1 for removable stickers / magnet versions. I only want them on the car when I need them. I’d rather not have them if permanent, they are so FUGLY

    Not correct. Everybody with a Tesla will get the HOV sticker, they may not always get the $2500 rebate.
