"One might think that a state with a green reputation such as California would be a leader in bringing PAYD policies to its car drivers. However, the new rules have come under fire from environmentalists who say the rules don't go far enough to bring about the changes that California's more green-minded drivers need.
Justin Horner, a policy analyst for the National Resources Defense Council, said in a release today, 'Our auto insurance policies are sorely behind the times. No one should be fooled. The new regulations proposed today cannot be characterized as green. They are nowhere close to what is needed to help the environment or reduce global warming pollution.'"
