An Operator of a Pay and Display Parking Station must have RCE located within the Parking Station for the prepayment of Rent. The RCE must upon the payment of Rent issue a Parking Ticket or Receipt to the Occupant that states the time and date issued, the amount of Rent prepaid, and the Occupant Period. The Parking Ticket or Receipt must contain a statement instructing the Occupant to display it on the dashboard of his or her vehicle, and must warn the Occupant that his or her vehicle may be towed for failing to display the Parking Ticket or Receipt as required. The Operator shall clearly and conspicuously post a sign at every location where the Occupant pays Rent, which is at least 10 inches by 15 inches in size, and in type at least one inch high and 3/4 inches wide, repeating the aforesaid display instructions and tow warning. Where an Operator has met the requirements of this Section, and the Occupant fails to display the Parking Ticket as directed by the Operator, the Operator may in its discretion tow the vehicle in accordance with California Vehicle Code Section 22658, 22952, 55953 or other applicable law or charge additional Rent. Such additional rent must be clearly stated in the rate posting signage required by Section 2220(b) of this Article.
An Unattended Parking Station that is not a Pay and Display Parking Station must have individually numbered and clearly marked parking spaces. The RCE must upon the payment of Rent issue a Parking Ticket or Receipt to the Occupant that states the time and date issued, the amount of Rent prepaid, and the Occupancy Period. The RCE must be able to record the identification number of the parking space occupied by the Occupant’s vehicle to track period of Occupancy.
The Enforcing Agency may issue such rules and regulations as are required to provide for the remote payment of Rent at Unattended Parking Stations through the use of telephones, cellular telephones, smart cards, debit cards or other electronic devices, consistent with the purposes and provisions of this Article.
An Operator of an Unattended Parking Station shall not tow or charge additional Rent to any vehicle that entered the Unattended Parking Station while the RCE was not fully operational and for a period of 8 hours after the RCE is restored to full function.
