News laws going into effect Jan. 1
Starting January 1, 2009, GPS devices stuck to windshields will have to be placed in either corner of the windshield, not in the middle.
Fees will also go up on traffic tickets by $35, fix-it tickets by $15 and the court cost to attend traffic school goes up $25.
New vehicles brought into California within 12 months of their purchase will be subject to a use tax -- under which the state hopes to raise $20 million.
Other new laws:
It will be illegal to publish the names and addresses of animal researchers.
People who recycle more than $100 worth of materials will face restrictions aimed at limiting theft from recycling bins.
And the state will create a system to train volunteers to help after oil spills, a response to the Cosco Busan disaster last year.
