Could attempts by San Diego city officials to curb the homeless living in RVs extend to all RV fulltimers? And what role does discrimination play in ticketing or impounding a less-than-desirable old RV from a recent-model 40-foot diesel pusher that is home to well-off fulltimers?
In a news report from KGTV, homeless RV owners are ringing the bell on what they say is unjustifiable ticketing and impounding of their vehicles.
Dozens of homeless who live in motorhomes gathered at South Shores Boat Launch in Mission Bay to protest the city’s two ordinances that make it difficult for them to park in city limits.
One prohibits parking of an RV anywhere on city streets between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m., while the second bans habitation in a vehicle. If the ordinance passes prohibiting “habitation in vehicle” it could open the door to ticketing any fulltime RVer passing through San Diego.
Disability Rights California is leading the effort that aims to strike the ordinances. There will be a federal court hearing on the matter Thursday, July 26.
