of the California tire fee as a charge that is separate from, and
not included in, any other fee, charge, or other amount paid by the
retail purchaser.
   (3) The retail seller shall collect the California tire fee from
the retail purchaser at the time of sale and may retain 1 1/2 percent

   (f) In addition to the civil penalty that may be imposed pursuant
to subdivision (e), the department may impose an administrative

each violation of a separate provision or, for continuing
violations, for each day that the violation continues, on a person
who intentionally or negligently violates a permit, rule, regulation,
standard, or requirement issued or adopted pursuant to this chapter.
The department shall adopt regulations that specify the amount of
the administrative penalty and the procedure for imposing an
administrative penalty pursuant to this subdivision.
   (g) For purposes of this section, "new tire" means a pneumatic or

motorized equipment, construction equipment, or farm equipment that
is sold separately from the motorized equipment, or a new tire sold
with a new or used motor vehicle, as defined in Section 42803.5,
including the spare tire, construction equipment, or farm equipment.
"New tire" does not include retreaded, reused, or recycled tires.
   (h) The California tire fee shall not be imposed on a tire sold
with, or sold separately for use on, any of the following:
   (1) A self-propelled wheelchair.
