This was sent to us from a reader in Alameda County, so we reached out to the San Leandro Police Department and asked if this was something that would normally get a citation.

“We always have the option to cite, but based on all circumstances taken into consideration, that may not be the most appropriate course of action. The person who owns the truck may need social service referrals, which could be our best solution in a situation like that. However, we would address the issue, as it does violate vehicle code section(s) and our city’s municipal code.”
