California Town Cracking Down On Overnight Truck Parking


California Town To Begin Fining Drivers For Parking As if it isn’t hard enough to find truck parking. Now, one California town says they will be cracking down on roadside parking.

It’s a paradox, drivers have to take breaks in order to comply with HOS laws, but it’s often hard for drivers to find places to park.

The town of San Juan Capistrano, California says it will begin enforcing its no roadside parking laws from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

According to Land Line Magazine, the area that will be policed is the east side of Camino Capistrano, north of Junipero Serra Road and north and south of the Trabuco Creek Bridge.

“Alan Oswald, senior engineer/traffic for the City of San Juan Capistrano, told Land Line it has been illegal to park there at any time for a number of years, but truck drivers are still doing it,” Land Line Magazine reported.

Oswald told the magazine he cannot offer suggestions for alternative parking locations but recommended drivers head south on I-5 to a San Clemente rest stop.

“The exact amount of fines is unknown, but overnight parking will bring two violations: parking in a no-parking area and parking an oversize vehicle on a city street,” Land Line Magazine reported.
