car dealers remember and support law enforcement

And the “R” they are worthy of in return

By Alan Barcelona, President, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association

A Message To Our Members, Sworn & Non-Sworn:

Every law enforcement officer who wears a badge has taken an oath to protect and to serve,  even at his or her own peril.  On a daily basis, these fine, brave men and women RESPOND to calls for help and to very dangerous situations. They RESCUE citizens from harmful individuals and  accidents and in doing so, RISK their own safety and their lives.  They are in the face of danger and often have to make split-second decisions to save others and to save themselves.  Not every human is cut out for this stressful but proud profession and not every human is willing to make that kind of sacrifice for the safety of another, most often, a complete stranger.

In the wake of the “use of force” cases that are currently in the national spotlight, the anti-police rhetoric that has  followed, and the December 20th assassinations of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos – I want to remind the citizens of California and this nation, that no one puts more on the line each and every day than our law enforcement officers, our firefighters and those who serve in our military.

These law enforcement officers have families – they are mothers and fathers, sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, uncles and aunts, nieces and nephews and cousins.  They, like anyone else who goes to work, have a right to return home to their families at the end of their shifts.

Our law enforcement officers feel the anger and hatred from some of those they have taken an oath to protect, and that hurts.  Our law enforcement officers are in the thick of protestors who hurl rocks and bottles at them as the officers work to keep people and property safe, and that is sinful.  For misguided individuals to stand up in front of microphones and cameras denouncing the peace officers in this country is a shame.

Our law enforcement officers would never demand our RESPECT, they don’t have to – they are worthy of it.  My message to the law-abiding citizens in  this state and in the country is this: Don’t let our law enforcement officers stand alone to shoulder the brunt of anti-police rhetoric that is making headlines.  Let your officers know you are there for them just as they are there for you.  A kind word, a letter, a blue light on your porch.  Be the eyes and ears of our law enforcement officers and please watch their backs.

To our law enforcement officers:  Be safe, be true to your oath, take the necessary precautions to ensure you return home to your loved ones and stand tall!  The silent majority will rise to the occasion and thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

new labeling rules for BHPH car dealerships

BHPH Dealer Requirements

The new legislation requires BHPH dealers, on every vehicle sold or leased, to:

Restrict the use of global positioning satellite (GPS) and starter interrupt devices,
unless the buyer has been advised. As with all consumer advisory requirements, the
department recommends the advisory statement be in writing and the buyer’s
signature is obtained on such written document.

Affix and prominently display a label on any used vehicle offered for retail sale that
states the reasonable market value of the vehicle. The label must meet all of the
following conditions:

—Printed with a heading in at least 16-point bold type that reads


with text at least 12-point type.

—Located adjacent to the Used Car Buyer’s Guide located prominently and
conspicuously on the vehicle so that it is readily readable.

—Identify all equipment included with the vehicle.

—Contain the information used to determine the reasonable market value of the
vehicle, including, but not limited to, the use of a nationally recognized pricing
guide for used vehicles.

—Contain the date the reasonable market value was determined.

—Indicate that the reasonable market value is being provided only for comparison
shopping and is not the retail sales price or the advertised price of the vehicle.

does @beepi understand the importance of the used car licensed location ???

we are students of the automotive sales industry

and retired law enforcement training officers

we run the largest dmv certified car dealer school in california

we have watched others pour millions

into failed disruptive technology attempts

look at carwoo

look at truecar

look at best offer

my 3 questions for the disruptive technology model are these

where are the buyers guides??

where are the happy stickers??

where are the insured dealer plates??

+++ is a licensed used car dealer in santa cruz california

this location, which they admitted to their landlord

is only for purposes of the dmv license seems to be running their operation out of los altos california

from an unlicensed location at 5050 el camino real suite 106

furthermore their disruptive technology model provides delivery to the customer

without a showroom visit to its licensed or its unlicensed location

the questions then arises, if you are issuing a temporary operating permit

as required by law

which jurisdiction is getting the location share of the reported sales tax

santa cruz??

los altos??

buyers address of record??

or as we suspect


because not one photo of a sold car shows a happy sticker

( temporary operating permit issued by the selling dealer )

this one flaw in your disruptive technology used car sales model

when noted by the state board of equalization

could spell doomsday for your $ 65M startup


if you have not addressed these three significant questions

your $ 65M startup is doomed for failure

perhaps a copy of my resume??

can i apply for your dmv liasion position??

is the @beepi used car sales model doomed to fail ???

we are leading experts in dmv certified car dealer education has made significant waves with its launch of a $ 65M used car dealership startup terms its model disruptive technology

and is funded by the same folks who funded disruptive technology company uber

here is a look at their model from a compliance point of view


one glaring issue for is compliance with the inspection of vehicle notice

the model provides for an unlicensed employee inspector

not a BAR certified mechanic

to perform an inspection prior to offering the vehicle for sale

the @beepi model does not allow test drives or independant third party inspections

here is the notice required by the california dmv to be posted at every used car dealer sales location

Notice to Public: Inspection of Vehicle
Every dealer who displays or offers one or more used vehicles for sale at retail shall post a notice not less than 8 inches high and 10 inches wide, in a place conspicuous to the public, which states the following:
“The prospective purchaser of a vehicle may, at his or her own expense and with the approval of the dealer, have the vehicle inspected by an independent third party either on or off these premises.”

the @beepi model never allows a showroom visit, vehicles are delivered to the customer and documents are done at delivery

so it begs the question how is this notice delivered to every retail customer of ???

their santa cruz licensed location is virtually abandoned and is unstaffed

with no business hours posted

their los altos unlicensed location may be staffed

and may post business hours

but their @beepi model does not allow independant third party inspections prior to the sale

the @beepi model offers a limited return policy after the sale

which does not comply with this portion of the california used car dealer law

renegade used car dealer startup


lawless rogue used car dealer ???

only dmv investigations can decide for sure

here is the dmv inspection report which each dmv inspector completes

when visiting a used car dealers licensed location

has passed its latest dmv inspection ???

we would be curious to know

the more we look the more we see how the @beepi model is doomed to fail

if they continue on the path of complete disregard for dmv licensing established rules and procedures



our cursory review of the used car dealer notice  compliance

is part of our committment to quality dmv certified education

if you are unhappy with a vehicle sold to you by

contact Commander Tom Wilson of the California DMV


a completed DMV complaint form INV-172 will be required
