Today (9/17/12) I went to my sister's house in Moreno Valley to take our ailing mother to the doctor. I didn't realize it, but it was street sweeping day and there was no parking in front of her home from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

At 10:24 a.m., my niece yelled for me to move my car. When I went out front, I explained I was a visitor and didn't realize the parking rules. The officer had already sent the ticket.(Turns out there was a sign across the street from my sister's, but when I pulled in, I was looking at my sister's house, not the freaking sign!)

That really left a bad taste of Moreno Valley in my mouth! But wait!

When I returned with my mother from the doctor's at 3 p.m., I noticed the street had not even been swept!

People of Moreno Valley, wake up! Do you really let your city collect parking fines for street sweeping days and then let it slack-off from sweeping?

Are you that apathetic, or just stupid?

Yes, I did take a photo. I appealed the ticket and after about a minute of "careful consideration," I was instantly mailed a denial of appeal. I can still request a hearing, and may do so.

There was a 2006 SB1404 which stated that cities could not charge for street sweeping tickets if the did not sweep. It eventually passed, but Gov. Terminator vetoed it. The fact that it became law makes me question that there is something very unlawful about this practice.

I also found out that homeowners are charged on the property tax statement for street sweeping based on the contract with the city. If the city sweeps less than the contracted amount, residents can request a refund.

That seems to be the case, even when there is no sweeping for the day.
