Mountain View posted signs to enforce its voter-approved measure of banning oversized vehicles on its streets despite a lawsuit, a report said.
On August 14, signs were posted in the Monta Loma and Farley areas. Signs will be up in the Moffett area and Whisman Road between now and mid-September.
Legal advocates filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of residents who live in RVs. They claim that the ban is unconstitutional and inhumane. Mountain View city leaders asked a federal judge for a dismissal of the suit, arguing that its intended purpose is to protect safety on the narrow roads.
It is forbidden to park large vehicles on streets with less than 40 feet width. It is also forbidden to park large vehicles on streets that have bike lanes. Mountain View has a ban on large vehicles (including RVs) that exceed 80%.
Mountain View leaders stated that they were unable to comment on the litigation filed against them.
