Default Notice: Brown Signs Bill Limiting Mobile Billboards

Brown signed this bill today. This basically gives cities and counties the right to ban mobile billboards outright when parked on streets or other public parking spaces. It is becoming painfully obvious that the advertising industry is the only outlet these outlaw regimes want in control of advertising. They've gone as far as even giving them the right to ticket cars with adverts on them, and the right to tow them when in violation, as well as making it a misdemeanor.
I predict this will cause immediate changes in local law here in relation to our mobile billboard.

Quote:
AB 1298, Blumenfield. Vehicles: parking: mobile billboard
advertising displays.
(1) Existing law authorizes a local authority to regulate mobile
billboard advertising displays. Existing law defines "mobile
billboard advertising display" to mean an advertising display
attached to nonmotorized vehicles for the primary purpose of
advertising.
This bill would revise the definition of "mobile billboard
advertising display." The bill would additionally authorize a local
authority, subject to specified exceptions, to regulate advertising
signs on motor vehicles parked or left standing upon a public street
Quote:
(m) Regulating mobile billboard advertising displays, as defined
in Section 395.5, including the establishment of penalties, which may
include, but are not limited to, removal of the mobile billboard
advertising display and misdemeanor criminal penalties, for a
violation of the ordinance or resolution. The ordinance or resolution
may establish a minimum distance that a mobile billboard advertising
display shall be moved after a specified time period.
Quote:
(p) (1) Regulating advertising signs on motor vehicles parked or
left standing upon a public street. The ordinance or resolution may
establish a minimum distance that the advertising sign shall be moved
after a specified time period.
(2) Paragraph (1) does not apply to advertising signs that are
painted directly upon or are permanently affixed to the body of, an
integral part of, or fixture of a motor vehicle for permanent
decoration, identification, or display and that do not extend beyond
the overall length, width, or heighth of the vehicle.
Quote:
v) (1) When a vehicle is a mobile billboard advertising display,
as defined in Section 395.5, and is parked or left standing in
violation of a local resolution or ordinance adopted pursuant to
subdivision (m) of Section 21100, if the registered owner of the
vehicle was previously issued a warning citation for the same
offense, pursuant to paragraph (2).
(2) Notwithstanding subdivision (a) of Section 22507, a city or
county, in lieu of posting signs noticing a local ordinance
prohibiting mobile billboard advertising displays adopted pursuant to
subdivision (m) of Section 21100, may provide notice by issuing a
warning citation advising the registered owner of the vehicle that he
or she may be subject to penalties upon a subsequent violation of
the ordinance, that may include the removal of the vehicle as
provided in paragraph (1). A city or county is not required to
provide further notice for a subsequent violation prior to the
enforcement of penalties for a violation of the ordinance.
(w) (1) When a vehicle is parked or left standing in violation of
a local ordinance or resolution adopted pursuant to subdivision (p)
of Section 21100, if the registered owner of the vehicle was
previously issued a warning citation for the same offense, pursuant
to paragraph (2).
(2) Notwithstanding subdivision (a) of Section 22507, a city or
county, in lieu of posting signs noticing a local ordinance
regulating advertising signs adopted pursuant to subdivision (p) of
Section 21100, may provide notice by issuing a warning citation
advising the registered owner of the vehicle that he or she may be
subject to penalties upon a subsequent violation of the ordinance
that may include the removal of the vehicle as provided in paragraph
(1). A city or county is not required to provide further notice for a
subsequent violation prior to the enforcement of penalties for a
violation of the ordinance.

This is a free speech issue, make no mistake of that. Brown also signed a bill allowing the city of Santa Monica to start a pilot program of lighted billboards on their busses; up to 25 of them to see how well the city does selling ad space to the highest bidder. Think that would be affordable to groups like us? Hell no....ACORN will pay it though. More importantly though is that what's happening is they are banning it for private companies, so they can allow muni's to sell it for more money. This government is getting so corrupt they don't seem to care about how shallow their little schemes are anymore

The law takes effect in January. At that time, cities and counties can start drafting codes. I think we're a little ways from that here in Sac, but not too far. I also doubt there's anything we can do right now. We have to pick our battles. If they cite us, we'll fight them on 1st amendment grounds, but that might take a few dollars in court fees. When that happens, we may ask for financial help.
You may want to keep tabs on the codes in regards to the mobile billboards in your municipality, and keep us advised
