MoCo & the state SIP

MoCo is serious about this current SIP order. Every single vehicle parked on the side of highway 1 from Ragged Point to Big Creek at least, was slapped with a red tag warning Friday. You can bet they are keeping track of the license numbers. Mostly, if not all, locals. I guess Jade hunting is out…

There has been law enforcement up Plaskett and Willow, too, stopping people to prove they live here.

  1. Good morning Kate. That parking notice is interesting as it is a BLM notice and cites CFR not state violations. There is no BLM land on that side. I am sorry it must be so crowded over there with traffic!

  2. BLM may be offering “mutual aid” in enforcing closures on USFS jurisdiction. Just a guess.

  3. The vehicle violation refers to 36 CFR 261.52 (e), which says:

    § 261.52 Fire. When provided by an order, the following are prohibited:

    (e) Going into or being upon an area.

    So I’m guessing they’re getting them for being in the closed part of the forest/burn scar (this particular ticket also cites CVC 5200, so they got a license plate violation too – probably no front plate) rather than anything SiP related.

    I was down there today (tracking) and it was business as usual between Carmel and Lucia (which was as far south as I went) – a lot less people than a typical weekend day, but more than a sprinkling of RV’s and trucks with camper shells parked in pullouts that looks suspiciously like they’d been there all night.

    Lots of selfie taking at Bixby too.
