Morro Bay councilman says vehicle code not for locals
November 29, 2013
Morro Bay Councilman George Leage said last week that only non-locals are prohibited from parking in Morro Bay red zones, according to a video submitted by a resident.
Leage, who was standing outside his residence at his family’s sushi restaurant Off the Hook, moved his red SUV out of the red zone shortly after noting it was properly parked.
Nevertheless, California Vehicle Code along with a Morro Bay City ordinance forbids parking in a red zone.
“Red indicates no stopping, standing, or parking, whether the vehicle is attended or unattended. Except that a bus may stop in a red zone marked or sign posted as a bus loading zone,” according to the California Vehicle Code Section 21458.
