My response:

The fact remains, you stopped your car - - even if only for a "blink of an eye" - - in a red curb section.

You violated California Vehicle Code section 22500(c), which states:

"No person shall stop, park, or leave standing any vehicle whether attended or unattended, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the directions of a peace officer or official traffic control device, in any of the following places:

(c) Between a safety zone and the adjacent right-hand curb or
within the area between the zone and the curb as may be indicated by a sign or red paint on the curb, which sign or paint was erected or placed by local authorities pursuant to an ordinance."

You're on the hook.
