DRAFT

OAKLAND PARKING ENFORCEMENT REFORM INITIATIVE OF 2010

All parking meters and parking kiosks in Oakland shall be removed and the chalking of tires shall enforce time limits in commercial areas.

Tickets for all violations (including street cleaning) will be capped at $20.00 and any late fees or penalties shall be limited to an additional $20.00 maximum.

For serious violations such as blocking a fire hydrant, curb cut or parking in a handicap zone, the maximum fine shall be $50.00 with a $20.00 cap on additional fees.

Vehicles shall not be towed except in the case of road hazard or abandonment. The booting of vehicles is strictly prohibited.

No vehicle shall be ticketed or towed for parking in or blocking a driveway without the consent of the owner of the driveway.

Towing and impoundment fees shall be capped at $100.00 per vehicle with storage fees limited to $5.00 per day.

Proceeds from impounded vehicles sold at auction, pay DMV fees first, impound and storage fees next and then parking citations. All remaining funds are to be retuned to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Prior to any sale of an impounded vehicle the original owner must be given the option to buy the vehicle back at the minimum auction bid price.

After a vehicle has been impounded, forfeited and auctioned, the registered owner has no more parking, fine, late fee, impoundment fees or any other obligation to the City for that vehicle regardless of the amount of sales proceeds generated.

The changes in the towing and storage guidelines shall be retroactive for one year upon passage of this ordinance.

Street Cleaning Policies Must Be Sensitive To The Residents.

PARKING ENFORCEMENT SHALL NO LONGER BE OPERATED AS A REVENUE GENERATING BUSINESS.

The above Draft Initiative is the product of three months of open meetings by a group of concerned Oakland residents and businesspersons held at the Grand Lake Theater.

The Group is strictly comprised of volunteers and we are now seeking Pro Bono Legal Counsel who will prepare this concept for the voter signature-gathering process to place this Initiative on the upcoming ballot to be decided by the Citizens of Oakland. We believe that the” lost revenue” to the City will be offset by a dramatic increase in economic activity as the Bay Area public returns to shop and be entertained in an Oakland that no longer preys upon residents and visitors as revenue generating targets.
