Typically no. The vehicle has to be on a public roadway or a public owned parking lot with expired tags to be in violation of the law. If you leave it parked on private property and are not driving it then you do not have to be current on your property taxes. However, I would check with your local police jurisdiction because some towns have code enforcement ordinances against these types of things and you could still be fined.

If your handicapped permit is expired can you still park in handicapped places?

No. If it's expired, you effectively do not have a permit, the same as if your driver's license is expired, you are not licensed. You may be able to contest or weasle your way out of a ticket if it recently expired and you encounter a forgiving police or parking officer, but it is not legal.

What is the penalty for having a parked car in a parking space with expired insurance and registration and what action should you take if it was towed?

Since the car wasn't in motion, expired insurance shouldn't be an issue (unless your state has a specific law dealing with this - but few do). No registration on the average will cost you $250. Your car was towed because it was parked illegally. You need to pay the ticket and the tow, or say goodbye to your vehicle.

Can a police officer issue a ticket in a hotel parking lot for expired tags even though the car has not moved?

I believe they can; with the exception being that if you own the hotel your car is on your property so it would be OK to have the expired tags. The question would then be if you can afford to own a hotel then why can't you renew your tags?

Does a parking ticket in California go on your driving record?

Parking tickets do not go on your driving record. Only moving violations will apply. However, if you don't pay the tickets your registration will not be renewed, then you could get a ticket for driving a vehicle with expired tags, which is also not a moving violation but if you don't pay it then they'll issue a warrant for your arrest and that will affect your record.

Will driving with an expired registration increase your auto insurance premiums if both auto insurance and drivers license were current?

You can't be sure with all companies...but most would not increase your premium unless it is a moving violation. However, expired registration violation, parking ticket violations, and other non-moving violation may lead to license suspension. Now, that is a complete different story. Such suspension may cause your insurance company to non-renew your policy.

Absolutely not ! No matter which country you're in - if the officer is off-duty - they're just another civilian, with no more jurisdiction to issue parking tickets than you or I. However they can make a note of your violation and either pass your details on or process your violation citation/ticket when they are back on duty.

Can you get a parking ticket if the parking officer did not have time to write the parking ticket?

In most cities, the ticket must be "served" to you, which means that it must be either: (a) handed to you, or (b) placed on your vehicle. So while it's not polite: if you catch an officer writing you a ticket, you will not be responsible for it if you drive away before it's served to you.

Can a police officer issue a ticket for parking in a no parking zone in an ungated private condominium complex in California?

You can find the answer in the governing documents of the condominium complex.It is possible that the board has discussed and voted on a resolution that requires such action that includes a police officer issuing a ticket.To a driver with a need to park, it should be clear that a no parking zone is not a place to park, regardless of where the no parking zone is located. A no parking zone is just that: not a place to park.
