A California auto safety agency says it will suspend sales of new models of the Fiat Chrysler and Chrysler Group vehicles that feature the “califORNIA” symbol.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles announced Monday it would stop sales of the new Fiat 500X, Fiat 600 and Chrysler 300 vehicles in the state.
It said the stickers were a distraction to drivers and posed a safety risk to drivers, especially young children.
A state-run news service in Los Angeles said the agency would be making the change for all models, which are available starting in April.
The agency is considering all vehicle models, but said it would consider only those that are new to California.
