[ Approved by Governor  July 09, 2021. Filed with Secretary of State  July 09, 2021. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 591, Villapudua. Vessels: arrests.
Existing law provides that whenever any person is arrested for certain offenses, including, among other things, an infraction involving vehicle equipment, the arresting officer is required to permit the arrested person to execute a notice, prepared by the officer in triplicate, containing a promise to correct the violation and to deliver proof of correction to the issuing agency, unless the arresting officer finds that a disqualifying condition exists.
Existing law generally requires every undocumented vessel, as defined, using the waters or on the waters of the state to be currently numbered. The owner of each vessel requiring numbering by the state is required to, among other things, paint on or attach to each side of the forward half of the vessel the identification number, as specified.
This bill would additionally require an arresting officer to permit a person arrested for various offenses, including, among others, the failure to paint on or attach to each side of the forward half of the vessel the identification number, as specified, to execute a notice, prepared by the officer in triplicate, containing a promise to correct the violation and to deliver proof of correction to the issuing agency, unless the officer finds that a disqualifying condition exists.
