Assembly Bill No. 1287
CHAPTER 485

An act to repeal Sections 40242 and 40243 of the Vehicle Code, relating to vehicles.

[ Approved by Governor  October 04, 2015. Filed with Secretary of State  October 04, 2015. ]

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1287, Chiu. Vehicles: parking violations.
Existing law, until January 1, 2016, authorizes the City and County of San Francisco (San Francisco) to install automated forward-facing parking control devices on city-owned public transit vehicles for the purpose of video imaging parking violations occurring in transit-only traffic lanes. Existing law subjects a violation of a federal or state statute or regulation, or a San Francisco ordinance, governing parking that is observed in the recordings to a civil penalty. Existing law requires San Francisco to provide to the transportation and judiciary committees of the Legislature, no later than March 1, 2015, an evaluation of the effectiveness and impact on privacy of video imaging parking violations occurring in transit-only traffic lanes if San Francisco installs automated forward-facing parking control devices on city-owned public transit vehicles for that purpose.
This bill would delete obsolete provisions requiring the evaluation and would also delete the repeal date for San Francisco’s authority to install the parking control devices, thereby extending the operation of those provisions indefinitely.
This bill would make legislative findings and declarations as to the necessity of a special statute for the City and County of San Francisco.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 40242 of the Vehicle Code is repealed.

SEC. 2.

 Section 40243 of the Vehicle Code is repealed.

SEC. 3.

 The Legislature finds and declares that a special law is necessary and that a general law cannot be made applicable within the meaning of Section 16 of Article IV of the California Constitution because of the unique circumstances relating to parking violations recorded by cameras on city-owned public transit vehicles in the City and County of San Francisco.
