I was [given a] ticket on 9/25 – number [redacted].
I am a new Sierra Madre homeowner and frankly never notice any [sign] giving notice that overnight parking is prohibited. No wonder I enter the city from San Carlos and at Orange Grove the SM city starts that onne [sic] take read [sic] risk crossing that very fast street and to the left the trees cut off the view of oncoming fast moving cars.
Little wonder, after crossing this street I never noticed that small no overnight parking sign.
I have done some research and noticed there are no warning sign[s] coming in to the city on streets; Fairview or west Montecito. I note there all kinds on parking signs on every street but non that give legal notice of no overnight parking.
How can the city legally enforce a parking code [when] there is almost no city wide notice, no legal notice as is the case on my street [redacted]?
Do I have the legal right to appear before a judge and state my case that [the] law is not enforceable give[n] the lack of legal notice?
I am not opposed to “no overnight parking” but the city must give proper legal notice. I bet there is some legal notice required that has not been legally met.
