Scenic Driving in California is awesome. The Golden State is car crazy, though most drivers use their cars for the daily commute, which is not all that exciting.
Taking a road trip up and down the Pacific Coast Highway is always cool, but there are many places to see along the streets, roads, boulevards, highways and freeways of California by automobile or motorcycle.
Below is a list of the most popular California scenic drive video articles ever featured on this blog. Some of the videos are extremely unusual and most feature music. You’ll find a favorite in this eclectic mix, guaranteed.
You know, sometimes you’ve just gotta get behind the steering wheel, slam on the gas pedal and see what’s up in the Golden State. Seriously.

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this:
1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.
Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:
Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

IF YOU OFFER CREDIT…..GET RED FLAG CERTIFIED
To help ensure your dealership gets and stays in compliance, Zurich insurance recommends the following seven steps:
1. Put the program in writing
Your program must contain reasonable policies and procedures to address four primary responsibilities under the rule. The rule also states that each program must be documented in writing. While potentially burdensome, this requirement has obvious advantages to the dealer. It forms the basis for the employee training that is required by the rule, and makes responding to government audits and inquiries possible.
2. Make a list of patterns, practices or specific activities that could be red flags signaling possible identity theft.
Your policies and procedures should require that you become at least reasonably certain of your customer’s buyer’s identity. A supplement to the rule on the FTC’s website provides illustrations of 26 possible red flags that fall into the following five categories:
—Receiving alerts, notifications or warnings from a consumer-reporting agency
—The customer presents suspicious documents.
—The customer presents suspicious personal identifying information, such as a suspect address.
—Dealership staff notices unusual use of or suspicious activity within an existing account.
—You receive notices from customers, victims of identity theft, law enforcement authorities or other businesses about possible identity theft in connection with an existing account.
Note, not all 26 possible red flags will be relevant to the way your dealership does business.
In particular, unless you have accounts to which customers can make charges after origination, for example, house credit accounts, the seven possible red flags in category four are not likely to apply to your dealership.
You also need to guard against identity theft risks that result from employee access to account information. Employee access should already be limited as part of your overall information security program.
3. Make a list of methods used to detect and evaluate if a red flag has occurred.
The program should describe procedures used to verify customer information and detect when information is incorrect. Some procedures include:
—Specifying acceptable forms of identifying information required of each finance customer
—Specifying procedures to verify identifying information, for example, using third-party resources to confirm identification or detect fraud
—Using a system to monitor employee compliance relative to their access and use of customer account information
4. Describe how your dealership will respond when red flags are detected.
The program must contain reasonable policies for responding to red flags detected during a transaction. This should include a procedure for escalating unresolved situations to senior management.
Some appropriate responses to unresolved red flags would be to:
—Not continue the transaction
—Use additional resources to verify the customer’s identity.
—Notify law enforcement.
—Determine that no response is warranted.
5. Document all red flag responses and keep them in the customer file.
All red flag responses should also be kept in a dealership file to be used to maintain and update the program.
6. Detail a plan to update the program periodically.
Update the program to reflect changes in risks to customers or to your dealership’s safety and security based upon:
—Your experience with identity theft
—New methods of identity theft
—New methods of identity theft prevention and detection
—Changes in the types of accounts offered or maintained by your dealership
—Changes in your dealership’s business or structure such as mergers and changes in service provider arrangements
7. Follow the Red Flags Rule guidelines in managing the program.
The rule provides for some specific administrative actions that need to take place to adequately manage your program. These include that your program must:
—Be approved and implemented by your dealership’s board of directors or, if no board exists, a designated member of the senior management team.
—Be periodically evaluated to determine if updates are necessary.
—Include training for relevant staff on their obligations under the program.
—Be able to ensure service providers have reasonable procedures to detect, prevent and mitigate the risk of identity theft.
Penalties for Violations
Penalties for violations of these regulations are stiff. These include the following:
—A “knowing” violation of the rule is a violation of the FTC Act, which provides for a $3,500 civil penalty for each violation.
—Enforcement actions by the FTC can carry penalties of up to $11,000 per violation, per day.
—Dealers may also be liable under state unfair and deceptive acts, and practices law, which may include individual and class action claims.
