Re: Ticketed for "Overnight Parking". Only Sign on Street is "Street Cleaning."
More often than not, these parking restrictions are set up by local authorities in their respective jurisdictions pursuant to in areas commonly referred to as "Residential Disctricts" and are established pursuant to several California Vehicle Code sections 22506 AND 22507 and in this case, specifically under 22507.5 allowing them to issue local ordinances regulating parking during any period of time that authority might choose.
Covina's regulation (along with most municipalities in the San Gabriel Valley) can be found under Covina Municipal Code #s 10.32.180 and 10.32.185...
If you parked your vehicle within the borders of the city of Covina, the presumption can be made that you were visiting someone there... And the qustion that begs itself then is: "Why did they not tell you anything about an overnight parking restriction? Alternatively, if you werenoy visiting anyone, why would you park somewhere without knowing the local rules and regulations?

CS, when you set such HIGH STANDARDS, you are setting yourself up for a HIGH LEVEL OF DISAPPOINTMENT...
The notice requirement which must be met is described under Government Code section 65090:
(a) When a provision of this title requires notice of a public hearing to be given pursuant to this section, notice shall be published pursuant to Section 6061 in at least one newspaper of general circulation within the jurisdiction of the local agency which is conducting the proceeding at least 10 days prior to the hearing, or if there is no such newspaper of general circulation, the notice shall be posted at least 10 days prior to the hearing in at least three public places within the jurisdiction of the local agency.
(b) The notice shall include the information specified in Section 65094.
(c) In addition to the notice required by this section, a local agency may give notice of the hearing in any other manner it deems necessary or desirable.
(d) Whenever a local agency considers the adoption or amendment of policies or ordinances affecting drive-through facilities, the local agency shall incorporate, where necessary, notice procedures to the blind, aged, and disabled communities in order to facilitate their participation. The Legislature finds that access restrictions to commercial establishments affecting the blind, aged, or disabled is a critical statewide problem; therefore, this subdivision shall be
applicable to charter cities.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
