I have owned a hybrid vehicle for 10 years and never had a problem. So what makes these do-gooders believe we need to make some foolish law now.

Our roads and Freeways are not maintained now in California so the < 3% hybrids are not an issue. We have big ruts. seams from relocated lanes, and big potholes on Freeways 101, 680, 580, etc in SF bay area. I don't see any of this problem near the state capitol or Los Angeles. Maybe this more of a problem with our state government's priorities.
Its is also very apparent that truck lanes are in the poorest condition due to the pounding from the trucks, a prime example Altamont pass highway 580.

I see the Hybrid as stepping stone to a full electric vehicle. So I just purchased a 2012 Mitsubishi 'i' rather than replacing my 2002 Toyota Prius with another Hybrid. Why would I buy another Hybrid when I can get 112 MPG equivalent from a EV. Toyota would be smart to offer a full electric vehicle in the near future.
