Section 22508.5 of the Vehicle Code was amended to prevent the practice of ticketing vehicles parked at broken meters. This new law took effect January 1, 2014.
AB 61, Gatto. Parking: parking meters:
Existing law authorizes a local authority to adopt an ordinance or resolution prohibiting or restricting the parking of a vehicle at an inoperable parking meter or inoperable parking payment center, as defined. Existing law authorizes parking at an inoperable parking meter for up to the posted time limit if no ordinance or resolution has been adopted to prohibit it.
This bill would prohibit a local authority from enacting an ordinance or resolution prohibiting or restricting the parking of a vehicle in a parking space that is regulated by an inoperable parking meter or inoperable parking payment center until January 1, 2017. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
