City, 1; Mobile Billboard Trailers, 0
You know those mobile billboard trailers that line streets for days at a time, taking up parking and generally looking ugly fugly? While the city can't outright ban them, they can enforce the 72-hour parking ordinance, which states that vehicles and trailer parked in the same spot for more than that time can be towed.
After having 77 trailers impounded, Lone Star Security and Video took the issue to court, challenging the validity of the City’s Ordinance alleging it was in conflict with the California Vehicle Code, according to the City Attorney's Office. An L.A. County Superior court denied a preliminary injunction against the city and today the Ninth Circuit Court sided with the city.
