I received a ticket this afternoon in East Palo Alto, California. This is part of San Mateo County if that matters.
I was specifically sites for cvc 22500(f), parking on the sidewalk.
I had parked my motorcycle in front of the Best Buy. I was on the sidewalk, no argument there.
Does cvc 22500(f) cover private property? I can see if I was parked on a sidewalk along a public street but this was inside a shopping center on privately owned property.
The ticket is $20 and I plan to pay it. I've just always wondered how the cops are able to give tickets on private property. I supposed it all comes down to the cvc definition of a sidewalk which I was unable to locate after a few minutes looking.
Can they give speeding tickets at a private race track if they were in the mood?
Thanks for the advice!
