    To Whom It May Concern:
    I’m not sure who to send this information to but I believe the citizens should be made aware of the recent tactics being enforced by the city of San Bernardino, one of the hardest hit cities in this economic crisis. Apparently, parking enforcement is scoping public parking lots to include target, food-4-less, and various other chains and citing citizens, while they are shopping in the store, for things such as missing a front license plate. This is something that all citizens who shop in the city need to be aware of. If you don’t believe me, go to the Target on Orange Show Road and look for the patrol person in the golf cart. What makes it so bad is they don’t even have the decency to leave the ticket on your car. If you’re lucky they will send it to you in the mail a week before it’s due – as was the case for me.

    I don’t think that’s legal. Those parking lots are PRIVATE lots, owned by Target, Food4Less…that is why the guy can drive around in a golf cart that’s got no headlights, brake lights, windshield, seatbelts…!!! All that vehicle code stuff applies to cars driven on PUBLIC roads. Can a farmer get a ticket because his tractor has no signal lights??? If he is on a PUBLIC road…yes…on his farm (private land)…no. They can’t boot your car if its on your driveway. You’ll never see a boot on a car that’s in a parking lot. The only exception is handicap enforcement because that is a parking violation. No front plate is a fix-it ticket. If these tickets stick, this guy better be in a street legal golf cart. Can this guy give you the same ticket if your car is sitting on your driveway??? I doubt it. Find out who this guy works for because not just any joe shmoe can go out writing tickets
