Have you ever been given a boondocking ticket?

Have you ever been given a ticket for parking overnight? Or heard of anyone else getting one?

If you park on a public street in a community that has laws against it, you get a ticket. I don't see the issue.

There are videos of the oil field workers that were living in a Walmart parking lot in North Dakota that all got evicted. They also were abusing the parking lot, drinking, prostitution, brawls, etc. They were given warnings and when the deadline was up, they were evicted, ticketed, or towed.

I don't blame them. They were even dumping on city streets.

Break the law, get a ticket. Nothing new here. People get parking tickets all the time.

I haven't overnighted on a street. I have been asked to leave a Walmart that used to allow overnighting, but no ticket.

As the lady said in the video who pays "property taxes" she got sick of finding faeces and urine odours in her bushes = I'd feel the same. Sadly one or two bad apples spoil it for everybody else.

Yet the best of it all is that they said "you can pay a $2" a day permit ticket and still park there. I mean really, two bucks a day for non committed long term access to the same location that the homeowners in the neighbourhood pay considerably more in property taxes. And ........... to boot the guy admitted he had a warning before getting the citation and wasn't surprised. It's hard to feel bad for folks based on this video. I thought the affected home owner interviewed was quite amicable considering folks have been defaecating and urinating in her bushes and heaven knows what else for a long time.

I do think to just ticket someone from the get go that might not even be familiar with an area on a one or three night stop over without warning is mean, but if you receive a warning and then 3 days later get a ticket fine then it's what I'd expect personally.

What they did not mention in the video is that the parking permits are issued only to residents to park their RV on their home's block.

No, but I would not boon dock on a public roadway that did not have signage indicating that the area was available for overnight parking.

If someone tried to boon dock in my neighborhood and they were not friends or family of my neighbors, I'd ask them to leave. However, by the time I checked them out, they should have squeezed in a nap or a good night's sleep and be ready to move on anyhow. If they did not leave, I'd encourage the sheriff's department to ask them to leave.

I'd hate to begrudge someone a chance to get off the road and grab a few winks, for safety's sake. However, you can't allow your neighborhood to become a destination.

Still you have to feel sorry for these people (boon-dockers). Until you have been down that road of forced home-less-ness you can't understand. The problem here is too people stay too long in one spot.

During our trip across the country to and from Alaska, there were many spots including Walmart's people were there for weeks on end. I'm just looking for a spot to park, sleep for 8 hours and be on our way. But I'm afraid actions by a few, will ruin it for everyone. Don't know what the answer is.

I regularly Drive that street and used to see the old RV residents there never saw a mess other than the RV itself but I agree it doesn't look nice. now its just empty street.
Now it seems they keep moving around city parks.

One of the local Cities set up a safe place for people to spend the night in their car or RV. They also established some "conduct" rules that have to be followed. Not many use it as I still see them on City and County roads everywhere. I guess they don't like following the "conduct" rules?

It's called homelessness.

Those rules also contain specifications for rigs, not just for "conduct." Most homeless individuals cannot afford to comply.

If all it takes is $2 a day to park here that is great.

Don't like a law, change it. Not following laws is anarchy.
