California Vehicle Code CVC Div 11, CVC Chap 9 Stopping Standing Parking


Always make sure that your ticket has a code written on it that MAKES SENSE,
based on this CVC code (if you are in California), or other applicable code.
If not, you stand a very good chance of having ticket dismissed on technical
grounds.

I'm publishing complete California Vehicle Code (CVC) here, for the use of our numerous visitors from California. Courtesy of http://dmv.ca.gov. The better you know the law the easier it will be to fight or dismiss your ticket. The links are complete as of 8/4/2009. The links are to the original source, so as long as the link works, you'll have the correct info. If you live in a municipality other than California, please add references to your laws online in the comments. Thanks!

triple annoying

Mentor Matt said...

These were the test posts. As you can see, the links are all nofollow. Now this shows that I have changed the html template as follows (notice I have removed rel='nofollow' from the href line):

[b:if cond='data:comment.authorUrl']
[a expr:href='data:comment.authorUrl'][data:comment.author/][/a] [b:else/]
[data:comment.author/]
[/b:if]

Notice I have replaced "<" and ">" with "[" and "]" to get the comment through the comment parser.
Anything else I can do?

Mentor Matt said...

Ok for anyone who landed here trying to help. I was surprised to see that when you look at these comments from the single post view, the Author links are dofollow. However, when you look at it from the multipost view, or separate comment view, the author links are nofollow. Any solution for that to become dofollow?

Separate issue, the backlinks are never dofollow, neither in the single post view nor in the multipost view. Does anyone know a way around that? Any comments welcome!

Annoying Parking Ticket said...

Anonymous, there is "Liability for Towing and Storage Charges", is that it?

Please give more details from your ticket when you post next time, thanks!

I parked on the street facing the wrong way. The officer filled out CVC 22500 Unlawful Parking "FACING". This actually falls under the catagory of CVC 22502a Curb Parking. Do I have a case based on a this technicality?

when staying at my friends house we have to move the car every hour. I saw the parking enforcement out when I drove up, so I was especially careful on that day. When I came out to move my car she had given me and another man, a ticket before the hour was up. we exchanged numbers as witnesses. Is there anything i can do to fight this? I took pictures of the sign and my car, dont know if this will help..

So I got a $400 parking ticket the other day for blocking a wheelchair acces. The only problem is that it just looks like a path way. The pathway is not even by a cross walk. I have read the VC section 22522 and it says if the area adjoining the ramp is designated by either a sign or red paint. But there are no signs or red paint. I have taken pictures that show that there is nothing posted or painted. Do I have a case on these basis?

Disclosure said...

Sounds like you are well equipped to show up in court with a well-documented case. I'd consult with a ticket attorney first though to be sure not to fall for a formality in court.

I mean how often do you go to court? Everyone else is there daily or at least quite frequently.

Hey everyone I have 2 parking tickets on my record, I had never received them, I lend my car out a lot, so someone else received the ticket and never told me. But now the car is sold, so I don't know if I should pay it or not. I received a letter from the Collection of Agency. The total is 170$. Is there any way of avoiding this ticket.. thanks a lot.

Disclosure said...

Personal opinion, whether you should pay the tickets has little to do with whether you earned them or someone else did.

I'm surprised the cost is so low, considering the tickets are in the collection process.

Let us know what you decided!

Got two parking tickets on the same day D:
Anyways on the Type and Color, they have different well one says TRK TN and the other says PAS BG could I dismiss one of the tickets on this lame technicality?

Disclosure said...

Absolutely, but, to be sure, consult with the lawyer for a 100% fool proof procedure.

Very onerous to know. however Vehicle Code CVC is nice for DoJ to trace Criminals and Statements for the crime offense.
