Becareful in Long Beach

According to the news tonight Long Beach police are ticketing pickups that weigh more than 6000 lbs if their not on a designated truck route. Residents who parked in front of their homes have been getting tickets for unladen weight violations on local streets. It is an old city ordinance that they are now enforcing. Those of you with superduties becareful.

I just went to the scrapper today and weighed 6200. As I left I passed a sign that said no trucks over 3 tons. I thought that was odd as it's one of the main streets to the dump. It is a smaller street but it still has access there from a main street.

Thanks for making me nervous, I had laughed about it but now that I see this I'll be nervous.

The same thing happened here in Montebello and I received a ticket for $142. I was pissed to say the least, so I got on the internet and went to the Montebello City web site and found the ordinance that stated that it must be posted that you can not park a vehicle over 6000 pounds. Long story short I fought the ticket and won. I also learned that my superduty weighs 6410 pounds.

Why do they make these stupid laws? They aren't giving Escalades tickets for that why are they messing with us?

California is running out of money. Now the City's are forced to seek there own funds. And it seems they are digging up old stuff to generate fundage. Look out cause here they come.

I'd guess they were written a long time ago when passenger vehicles with an unladen weight of over three tons were unheard of.

The city's website clearly states that vehicles over 3 tons may only park in authorized areas: City of Long Beach, CA - Parking Citations

As far as the truck routes, the signs say commercial vehicles over three tons - if I was cited while driving through and not "engaged in commerce" I'd fight that one - what a pain in the butt though.

I used my Suburban to haul way more weight than I have ever had a chance to haul on my Super Duty. I haven't had a chance to do much more than around 10k on the truck but the Suburban almost always had a heavy duty trailer attached to it. Yes I know you said more often. Either way I think that sucks.

That law has been there for a long time, I guess they just recently started to crack down. In the near 20 years I lived and worked in Long Beach starting in 1982 I never once got stopped for overweight.

I'll pay attention now, though.
