Will San Diego crack down on homeless people in parking lots for 3 days?
The city of San Diego is considering cracking down on people who leave their cars or trucks parked in the same spot on a public street for too long. It is already illegal to leave a vehicle parked on any of San Diego’s public roads for more than three consecutive days, but city officials say the rule has been difficult to enforce due to cars moving the shortest distance to avoid being towed. The San Diego City Council Public Safety Committee voted unanimously on October 18 to approve an amendment to the San Diego Municipal Code regarding 72-hour parking violations, which increases the required distance a vehicle must travel when left on a public road for 72 consecutive hours. hours.
Under the revised law, vehicles must travel at least a half-mile instead of a tenth of a mile to restart the three-day timer. The ten-mile mark of SDMC 86.0137 — “prohibiting the use of streets for the storage, service, or sale of vehicles or for habitation” — was created in 1985 when officers would look through windows and check the odometer to determine whether or not a vehicle had moved far enough, According to a staffer for Mayor Todd Gloria. “The current distance of one-tenth of a mile is an outdated requirement and prevents effective implementation of this municipal code,” Kohta Zizer, Gloria’s deputy director of community engagement, said in a presentation. By increasing the required distance, he says the city will be able to better enforce regulations using visual designations and improve parking turnover, especially in commercial corridors.
Since the beginning of the year, the city’s Get It Done Tipster app has received more than 37,000 reports of parking violations over a 72-hour period, averaging about 130 complaints per day. Once officers investigate the complaint, they will leave a pink warning notice on the vehicle. If the vehicle has not moved the appropriate distance when police return within the next 72 hours, it will be towed or issued a ticket. The fine is $53.50, with a first late fee of $41.00 and a second late fee of $10.00, according to the city’s website. Councilwoman Jennifer Campbell, who represents the beach communities in the city’s 2nd District and Claremont, said illegally parked vehicles blocking roads were a big problem among her constituents. “People get a quote, and then they move it 3 feet or something like that,” Campbell said during the commission meeting. “They got away with it under the old law, so it’s very important that we make this progress.”
The Public Safety Committee voted 3-0, with Councilman Raul Campillo of District 7 absent, to approve the amendment to the current law. It still has to be brought before the full City Council for consideration. The amendment will require two hearings, with the second hearing taking place in December at the earliest, according to a Gloria spokesperson. If this change is approved, it will go into effect 30 days after the second hearing. 7San Diego
