CHP Highlights AB1820 And California Laws Going Into Effect in 2020

As Californians prepare to ring in a new year — and a new decade — CHP is urging motorists to be ready for a slate of new laws set to take effect in 2020 that will impact road safety.

The new rules govern how bicyclists can travel through turn lanes, revoke an exemption that allowed some passengers to consume marijuana, and create a major step toward allowing roadkill to be salvaged, among other things.

The laws are set to go into effect on Jan. 1, 2020, the California Highway Patrol said in a news release Tuesday. Here are the ones CHP highlighted:

Passengers Prohibited From Consuming Cannabis 

Assembly Bill 1820 ends an exemption that allowed passengers to consume marijuana while in a bus, limousine, taxi, pedicab, house-car or camper. While passengers in any of those vehicles will no longer be able to ingest cannabis, they will still be able to drink alcohol.

Another provision in the same bill authorizes motor carriers of property to operate for up to 30 days past the permit’s expiration date under some circumstances.
