Here in my corner of Washington State, it is the same thing. People that have boats take their handheld VHF Marine radio and use it in the shopping malls, hunting and in road convoys with their family members. I have a neighbor who can't be told anything about the law, who uses any radio he can purchase any way he pleases.
Since enforcement is not very pro active, nothing has ever happened.
CB, GMRS, Marine VHF and even surplus commercial radios sold on Craigslist with the old users frequencies still in them get used often.
I previous employer of mine sold hundred of mobile and handheld radios on local auction sites when they replaced them with something newer. Then I began to hear people on those frequencies that were not company employees. This previous employer didn't even attempt to wipe the programming in their hardware.
