So here is what happened...
I ran into Wal-Mart for 15 min and like every other motorcyclist out there I parked on white stripes. Now I parked to where I wasn't in anybody's way (I took a picture showing that no one was effected by my parking). I was in and out in 15 min and came back to a parking ticket on my bike to the tune of $250. Now I know that I shouldn't have parked there but all motorcyclists park in those small spots that no one can use. It gets us closer w/o blocking anyone and it saves a parking spot for someone else (I know I'm quiet the humanitarian!)
Anyways I was wondering, is it lawful to give a parking ticket on Private Property? (Wal-Mart isn't owned by the state now is it?!?) If there was someone illeagaly parking in my apartment complex, I couldn't call an officer over to give them a parking ticket now could I? I could have them towed if I had the proper signage up, but not a parking ticket from the cops.
So I was just wondering if anyone knew anything more on this topic, Please let me know!What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
