For more than a year, residents of Southeastern San Diego have taken issue with the number of vehicles for sale that are parked in their community.

On Tuesday, their complaints will finally be answered. That day, city councilmembers will consider adding seven streets in Encanto, Southeastern San Diego, and City Heights to a list of streets that already have prohibitions against parking vehicles that are for sale.

In February 2011, planning groups in Encanto and in Eastern San Diego first discussed the safety hazards created by the parked vehicles. Residents claimed the situation became so widespread that used car dealers were placing advertisements for their business inside parked cars. At those planning meetings, members urged the City to post signs in their community.

Now one year later, nearly three years after the City implemented the Car Sales Ordinance for 23 streets from Clairemont to the College Area, signs will go up in areas surrounding Southeastern San Diego. Those in violation of the ordinance will be subject to $50 fines, up to two per day.

The council will consider the item during their Tuesday morning session.

This is great news! It is always so ghetto-looking when you drive to Southeast to gang bang or do a drive-by and there are all these crappy cars along the streets with for sale signs. How are you supposed to know whether they have cops or the DEA hiding in them when you are trying to buy some crack? I do not mind the big, junky vans with expired tags and roomy interiors because then you can turn some tricks in them for free without having to rent a cheap motel to get busy with some fool! Thanks for upgrading da hood. (jk)

I really dont understand why people dont get their cars in special autoparks for selling it or to automobile donation events.At this type of events you can find people who could buy it.
