The California vehicle code also says parking on the sidewalk is illegal, saying, "On any portion of a sidewalk, or with the body of the vehicle extending over any portion of a sidewalk, except electric carts when authorized by local ordinance, as specified in Section 21114.5. Lights, mirrors, or devices that are required to be mounted upon a vehicle under this code may extend from the body of the vehicle over the sidewalk to a distance of not more than 10 inches."
Andrews questions after four decades why the sudden enforcement. She said she doesn't want to block people from being able to pass the vehicle but wants to know where the city would like her to park.
The Andrews family has appealed the ticket, and the San Diego Police Department says they are looking into it.
