No Chaffey College Parking Tickets Are Not Enforceable ?
Are you one of the hundreds of Chaffey College students recently greeted with a parking ticket on the windshield of your car for parking on a street designated as "No Chaffey College Parking" ? Well don't fret, the tickets are not enforceable and some have gone so far as to declare these parking tickets are not legal.
Beginning in September of 2012 the San Bernardino County Sheriff's department (contracted as Rancho Cucamonga Police Department) have been issuing parking tickets in the residential areas surrounding Chaffey College where signs reading "No Chaffey College Parking" have been posted. These new no-parking signs display no California Penal Code or Rancho Cucamonga City Code, and may simply be the result of concerned and frustrated citizens of the neighborhood.
As confirmed by one Rancho Cucamonga Parking Enforcement employee (while in the process of writing the parking tickets), these tickets are simply "because the sign says no Chaffey College parking". Parking enforcement does not mark the tires for time, nor does the Parking Enforcement Officer have any way to determine if the car is actually owned by, or in use by a Chaffey College Student. "All they have to do is contest the ticket to get out of it".
Residents in the Chaffey College area have voiced concerns over Chaffey students blocking driveways, parking improperly, violating posted speed limits, urinating in bushes and playing loud music from their cars. As a result the community has taken steps to have the new "No Chaffey College Parking" signs posted.
Please respect the neighborhood and avoid the hassle of having to contest these parking tickets by using the Chaffey College parking areas where possible.
