    This county code came about from a majority of the citizens of Sacramento County whose neighborhoods were being polluted by dead and semi-dead "projects" parked in driveways and curbside. Some of the most vocal supporters were folks from low income neighborhoods trying to keep their homes and neighborhoods from becoming cluttered slums further lowering their property values. This was NOT about "sticking it to the little guy." It was about preserving the little guys neighborhood. Most affluent and gated neighborhoods have already had formal CCRs mimicking this code for years. It was the lower middle class and low income neighborhoods where "cinder block cars" were becoming a progressive blight. So be it if we have to legislate hillbilly behavior...just another form of pollution and littering.
    I'm kinda on the fence about this one...on one hand I agree people SHOULD keep their neighborhoods looking tidy, on the other hand I have a problem with the government telling people what they can and can't do with THEIR own property....
