A previous post stated the the $2.00 per day fee was only for residents.

The $2 fee is probably, as has been suggested, the fee for a resident to temporarily park on a residential street. It's not a camping fee.

In Colonial America, folks didn't like the taxes on tea, sugar, documents, etc. They tried to change it, but had to resort to revolution. One person's anarchy is another's revolution.

Not true at all. No vehicle rules, just personal conduct.

This is a very old topic in SoCal...San Diego copied some other beach communitis laws in 2013. Chula Vista copied SD about a year later.

As typical, TV news only gives a piece of the story...the permit is required for ANY oversize vehicle (boat, trailer or motorhome) and ONLY for verified residents with a vehicle registered to the resident (no guests) and the cost is $1.25 plus 75 cents for the contracted permit vendor. The permit time (forbidden without) period is 2-6am The RV must be parked within 100 ft of the resident's address and there is a 3 day consecutive max for permits and 75 days total for any year period.

That basically means no transient parking from 2-6am...and does not prevent a stop for travelers needing a nap.

Now, fast forward 2 years... the reality is that only residential areas (especially the beach communities) get enforcement, unless a citizen complains. There are enclaves of "live-aboard " RV'ers still overnighting in the industrial parks all over the area....unless a citizen complains.

Safe travels

Never been given a ticket. But I've been told to move plenty of times.

It's bad enough people let their dogs crap on your lawn during a walk and leave. But when people even homeless DO the same there is a line to be drawn.

I have never "been given a ticket for parking overnight".
(Probably because I've never parked overnight where it's illegal to park overnight).

BTW I know people who have received parking tickets..... but all of them where illegally parked at the time.
That's what CAN happen, (and IMO SHOULD) ,if you choose to break the law.

The lady in the video says "I don't know what I'll do" how about getting a job then you can afford camping at a real campground. Many of these people aren't on an adventure living off their 401k's or pensions staying a day here or a week there but are "takers". I wouldn't want them in my community either.

Ok, but if you are in a new town, you would not know where it is illegal to park unless there are signs saying so.

When I've stopped in a new town, I head to Walmart or other businesses that are generally known to be RV friendly. I check with the manager or folks at the customer service desk after making a purchase. I would not try curbside parking in a residential neighborhood, a public park, or a municipal parking lot at a beach.

Also you could stop at the local police department and ask for advice. Churches also can be a place you can get permission for an overnight stop.

I always find out if boondocking is allowed where I want to boondock BEFORE I boondock there.

You can ask the police dept by phone or in person about "street parking"... or a store manager by phone or in person about "parking lot parking".....(or you can take a chance).

If you do choose to "take a chance" be aware that you might, (in no particular order):...be told to move...not be bothered... or be issued a citation and have to pay the resulting fine.
