SECTION 5091.15



5091.15.  (a) Except as provided in this section, no person shall,
from November 1 of any year to May 30 of the next year or for a
shorter time as determined by the department, park a vehicle in a
designated parking area unless the vehicle displays a parking permit
issued by the department. Overnight camping in a vehicle parked in a
designated parking area may be authorized by the department when it
determines that the use is for a recreational activity, is safe and
prudent, and is of limited duration.
   (b) No parking permit shall be required under this section for a
vehicle owned and operated by the United States, another state or
political subdivision thereof, or by this state or by a city, county,
district, or political subdivision thereof.
   (c) The fee for the issuance of a parking permit under this
chapter shall be determined by the department. The department shall
hold at least one public hearing and notify the Legislature at least
30 days prior to any proposal to change the fees.
   (d) A person who violates this section is guilty of an infraction
punishable by a fine of seventy-five dollars ($75). Unless the peace
officer issuing the citation witnesses the parking of the vehicle, a
rebuttable presumption exists that a vehicle parked in violation of
this section was parked by the registered owner of the vehicle. If
the parking of the vehicle is witnessed by the peace officer, the
operator of the vehicle is in violation of this section.
   (e) The department may negotiate reciprocity agreements with other
states having similar programs if the agreements are in the best
interests of the California SNO-PARK program.
   (f) The department may contract with appropriate agencies for law
enforcement, including, but not limited to, the Department of the
California Highway Patrol, the county sheriffs, and the United States
Department of Agriculture Forest Service. Enforcement activities may
be funded with moneys appropriated from the Winter Recreation Fund.
