New spaces working to deter oversized vehicles on Carmel Vista
Oversized vehicle parking has long been an issue in Carmel Valley, but the problem has seen somewhat of a solution on Carmel Vista Road.
District 1 Council member Sherri Lightner reported at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting Sept. 27 that a new painting program on the street and “aggressive enforcement” has seemed to be a success. The street was painted with 24-foot space markings so only certain size vehicles can be parked there.
“It looks like it’s working,” Lightner said, noting that oversized vehicles seem to have gone down from around 15 to two.
Per the San Diego Municipal Code, no vehicle can be parked continuously at one location on any public roadway for more than 72 hours. To report vehicles parked longer than 72 hours, call (858) 495-7800. The vehicle abatement unit can be reached at (858) 495-7856.
