A disabled-rights attorney is calling for the City to end its moratorium prohibiting vehicle habitation throughout most of the City, warning policies punishing people without housing and forcing them into crowded shelters or safe lots will worsen the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This strategy runs counter to recommendations of public health experts asking people to shelter in place,” argued Ann Menasche, a senior attorney with Disability Rights California. “The CDC advises that encampments not be cleared during community spread unless and until individual housing units are available. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recommends a 12-feet by 12-feet space per individual, which are unlikely to be offered at the City’s shelters or “safe lots.”

Contends Menasche, “The City has had a long-standing policy of punishing people who use their vehicles as shelter, even when they lack adequate housing alternatives. Punishments range from arrest and incarceration to expensive ticketing that can lead to loss of the vehicle through towing and impoundment, resulting in unsheltered homelessness.”

Menasche has filed a class-action suit against the City attempting to overturn a new ordinance approved a few months ago making vehicle habitation illegal almost everywhere in the city other than designated “safe lots.”

She recently sent a letter to the Deputy City Attorney demanding emergency action to alleviate disproportionate harm to vehicle inhabitants during the ongoing health crisis.

Said Menasche in her letter, “The City’s policies have placed people who use their vehicles for shelterin an exceptionally perilous position… it is essential that they are allowed to shelter in place in their vehicles and to maintain sufficient physical distance from other vehicles while having access to adequate sanitation, running water and healthy food.”

Added Menasche, “Our clients also need access to other necessities including places to charge medical equipment such as c-pap machines, and access to the internet to allow them to receive up-to-date information about the pandemic, no longer available to them due to closure of public libraries and coffee shops… the City has refused to issue a moratorium on all ticketing under the Vehicle Habitation Ordinance and Oversized Vehicle Ordinance, and to end impoundments of vehicles used for shelter. Instead, the City has made a bad situation even worse by closing the park and beach parking lots, thereby denying access to public restrooms and showers utilized by people sheltering in vehicles, and to the free grey water disposal dumps in Mission Bay which RV owners depend upon for safe grey water disposal.”

“This is outrageous,” concluded Menasche. “Forcing people into mega-shelters at Golden Hall and the Convention Center is the exact opposite of what we need. The City’s reckless policies violate lock-down orders issued by the state and federal government and go against the clear guidance of the CDC. It is time for the City to get it right before more people die.” Added Menasche about what’s required, “We need to have a moratorium on the ticketing of people living in their RVs or other vehicles and the impoundment of those vehicles. We need to open bathrooms in beach parking lots so people sheltered in their vehicles can use them. We also need to reopen the waste disposal dumps for the RVs.”

The City of San Diego could not be reached for comment.

Hi, for two years I had $95,000 in debt, including $36,420 in credit card debt. My credit score was nothing to write home about. I managed to get most of my debt removed in bankruptcy and i was left with $7,000 car loan and $51,000 in student loans. Determined not to repeat my mistakes again I was recommended by a credit consultant to contact 760PLUS CREDIT SCORE who would help fix my credit score and clear my loans she referred me to her hacker friend she has met years ago who specializes in fixing credit score. I contacted him through [email protected] the following day, it took him some time to get back to me, because he was fully book, after a while he responded and helped me out. He started from raising my credit score to 799 after which he cleared my outstanding pending bills. I bounced back quickly, I am currently on my feet and on my way to buying a house. All thanks to 760 Plus. You text : 1(304)-774-5902.

This is way over due. So do people plan to live in their car forever? The homeless should have been doubt with long time ago. El Cajon is a piss pot city for the homeless they sleep where ever when they wake up whats the first thing all humans do ???? go to the bathroom well homeless pee in bushes, buildings, not far where they were laying also that goes for taking stools. This happens every day every night,you do the math. soon will have a new disease if not an outbreak of something we don't want. I'm sure the dumpster divers could be spreading germs everywhere,The people who found resources to keep up your hygiene GREAT.For some they don't want to follow the rules. The question is why are people living in their car or on the streets??? Could it be because California is very expensive living here
