Would it be considered a violation of a traffic code if an individual parked behind a handicap parking for a brief period of time to unload a student in California?

In most situations, whether an individual violates traffic code or not when this individual parks behind a handicap parking depends on the parking space itself. According to the California Vehicle and Traffic Code, an individual may be prohibited from stopping or parking in a handicap parking lot unless they do so to avoid conflict with other vehicles on the road or on instructions from a traffic control personnel. Generally, in such situations, a police officer may not file a violation ticket against the individual if this individual has had their vehicle removed from the parking space as soon as possible and then does not cause any more issues with other traffic.

Can an individual ask a traffic officer for the original copy of their radar equipments recent calibration?

However, in some situations, the individual does have the right to ask the officer for a copy to use as evidence, especially if they believe that they were wrongly accused of a traffic violation.

Would it be considered illegal if an individual drove on a yellow line but did not cross it?
