Why. If a peace officer has the right to be present when a person is issued a citation, how is it possible to enforce a red light camera violation?
– Eric Peterson, Granada Hills
a. Hank recently told the wonderful residents of Hunkland that when the California Highway Patrol spies a plane or helicopter from above at a speeding speed, the citation officer is in the sky, not the black-and-white who catches up. Hands on with the offender and the ticket.
When a driver trips up enforcement cameras because of running a red light, there is definitely no officer nearby.
State Legislature sets guidelines for police agencies when using red light cameras Officer Danny Mihalik, a collision investigator in Garden Grove’s Neighborhood Traffic Unit. His city has had red-light cameras since 2004.
In Garden Grove, the Citation Officer is at his workstation who then looks at the photographs and videos taken by the cameras and decides whether the Citation should be issued.
If a motorist contests a Garden Grove red-light ticket, he or she goes to court to endorse the citation, accompanied by the citation officer, a deputy city attorney.
Email Hon, if you like – he knows that many drivers hate red light cameras, and some will tell you they are illegal.
Well, as Honk’s lawyer father told him, the only opinion that matters in determining the law is who wears robes for a living—the judges, the people, not the singers in the choir or Nordstrom models.
Love them or hate them, red light cameras are meant to prevent one of the worst types of road collisions: T-bones.
“Those broadsides are always dangerous, even at slow speeds,” Mihalik said.
Why. Perhaps you can give me a lead on finding an answer, or better yet an actual answer: Are there minimum and maximum width requirements for parking stalls in a state or county? The stalls I’m thinking of are straight (not diagonal) and are in an included parking area.
– Liza Garcia, El Modena
a. The state has no such law, it is left to the local jurisdiction to set the standard, it said. Shannon Vidor, a spokesman for the Orange County Department of Public Works, but the requirements are “very similar.”
In your case, Liza, since you are not in a city but are in an unincorporated county area, county rules apply.
“The minimum dimensions for a parking space (in unincorporated areas of Orange County) are 9 feet wide by 18 feet deep,” Vidor said. “If the parking space is next to a wall or obstruction, the width should be 11 feet wide. ,
“Parking-space size applies to any proposed parking space regardless of use (eg condo, commercial, etc.) and there is no maximum established,” he said.
The exceptions are disabled-person parking spaces, which provide more room for cars and trucks to move in and out.
Also, a parking slot could have been established before the existing law came into force and became a grandfather.
Honkin’ facts: The first traffic cones were made of wood and were hard to see, break easily and were not inclined to take a look and back up in a realistic way. Then in the 1940s, Charles D. Scanlon, who worked for the City of Los Angeles in the Department of Roads, designed and manufactured cones with used tires and then began making cones made of rubber sheets; Quickly, LA started using them.
