Freeway off ramps have breakdown lanes on the right separated by a white line. A disabled vehicle can safely pull into these lanes. During the car show this past weekend of June 16, these lanes were used for parking; the alternative being a spot halfway to Nipomo.
After a happy, festive day of wandering through the crowds, kicking tires, etc., we returned to our parking spot only to find that all the cars in these lanes—about 15 or 20—were ticketed And the parking fine is a whopping $154!
I’m hoping the show promoters, the Chamber of Commerce, and the Pismo Beach City Council will call in the chief of police and say to him, “What the hell were you thinking?”
