Have you seen these in your area? Here in CA these fuckers are everywhere, they go through the neighborhood every month checking on people's cars to see if they're registered or not. They actually towed one of my cars in front of my house last year, and they're even more active recently.
In my town they have a guy in a tacoma.
I've had to chase him off my property more than once, as he doesn't seem to understand the concept of private property and that he legally can't have the truck i've got on a tractor stand towed even if the registration expired two years ago.
... Cars have to be registered to sit on your driveway? What?
Also, what is the law about "plain sight" and being able to trespass when there is a crime in progress? Don't know if the meter maids have that sort of power but maybe.
Parking enforcement here
I drive a big boy vehicle though
They're probably more active because 1st of the year means a ton of people's registrations expired
Also for the people asking about private property, no we can't tow or ticket cars with expired registration parked in driveways. Only if they're on public streets and -some- commericial lots
Not really, if the car is sitting on private property, they have to have something better than expired tags. The asshole in the Tacoma is proably paid by the car so he's just looking to line his pocket more.
I would record him the next time when you confront the guy and take that to a lawyer and look into harassment charges.
This is the Internet and this man is completely legitimate.
But his facts stand up. Couple Google searches say the same thing; registration is helpful if the ownership of the vehicle comes into question, and of course mandatory if you're on the road with it, but doesn't need to be registered to sit on a stand on your private property.
It's not even on the driveway or in plain sight, and to get to it there's a low wall, a fence and a pile of concertina wire (I literally hae no idea why or where it came from, it's like it fell out of a c130 or something and i've been trying to get the local navy base to eityer take it back or pay me rent) between it and the road.
The last time I had the police escort him off the premisis and brought it up at the next council meeting.
yup already well aware, just mostly trying to let the city know they hired a communist or something.
Exactly, it may be a shitty truck that once I dug into it to redo the brakes I found more stuff to fix, but it's my shitty truck and no one else can have it until I get tired of wrenching on it.
