question. who can legally write you a parking ticket. >> turns out that is not an easy question to answer. now michael finney with what it means to you. >> when a city marking enforcement officer writes a ticket like this there is no question, you have to pay. but what about getting a ticket from one of these guys?
they don't work for the city. they are employed by private companies writing tickets in private parking lots. we witnessed a parking employee writing citations for several cars who parked in the parking lot for more than 90 minutes. he used an electronic reader that looks similar to the ones the city parking enforcement officer uses. i caught up with darlene after she got a ticket in the laurel village parking lot from a company called parking control service. pcs. >> i was trying to find parking. i just wanted to run in and get something to eat. it looked like i couldn't park here. >> who do you think wrote that ticket? >> the meter people? >> no. it is a private company. it has nothing to do with the government. >> oh really? >> yeah. >> so your point? does it mean i don't have to pay it? >> that is the question. the attorney general doesn't
think so. in 2011 she issued a legal opinion about this. >> according to the attorney general a landowner does not have the authority to issue these kinds of documents. >> that is david levine. he is a professor at hastings law school. he says harris' opinion is not law, but could be used as a defense this court. >> when the california attorney general issued an official opinion it technically doesn't have the force of law, but it is very, very persuasive. jay we contacted the san francisco city attorney's office and it had no opinion. across the bay in emeryville, the city attorney and the police department have warned the private parking company about the practices. >> the attorney general's opinion says that they don't have the authority to issue citations with an accompanying fine.
we made hour private parking ventures aware of that. >> we reached out and they e-mailed the statement. pcs takes no position on it other than to say it believes its own business practices are lawful. recently while meeting a friend her car was cited by pcs. >> i felt victimized and i felt really, really angry. >> she went on-line and found harris' opinion so she didn't pay it and has never received a follow-up letter. and now even though the language on the ticket makes people believe that they have to pay the fine, levine believes the pcs doesn't pursue parking charges. >> implied might be a threat to sue somebody in small claims court, but my assumption is they will just take the money they can get when people voluntarily send in the money and call it a day. >> darlene smith is not sure whether she will pay her
ticket c. i have a warning for you. it is quite clear by law that private parking lots have the authority to tow a car when it is parked in violation to rules. keep that in mind. michael finney, 7 on your side. this is wild. a canadian man didn't expect a sky high fee on a flight he took recently. look at this. that is a charge of $1,171. he racked up the wi-fi fee on a sing singapore airlines trip. jeremy is seen here in a youtube video. he says he bought a 30 megabyte plan and visited 39 pages and downloaded a power point. it shows passengers their data use at all times. >> a year's worth of snow is falling in new york state. more than four feet trapped people in their cars for hours. here is a picture showing exactly what people are
dealing with. 150 cars were stuck including the basketball team. they are still trapped on their bus and have been waiting 24 hours for rescuers to come. they are trying to make the best of it. the players have been tweeting and posting selfies. police are delivering supplies and yes there is a bathroom on the bus. >> that is the most important. let's talk about the weather forecast. we are tracking a lot of storms. >> we are getting precipitation. sandhya patel is here with the latest. you say it better so i will go to you. >> you do the news and i will do the weather. >> exactly. >> you kwan see the -- you can see the precipitation on the radar. it is in the form of sprinkles, but i am seeing dark darker returns from crockett and sky way. we are looking at moisture hitting the ground. this is in advance of a system off the coastline. we will see the sprinkles move through.
if you have travel plans, lake affect snow continues as you can see here. they have seen so much snow that one of my local viewers here sent me this picture of a friend of hers. he is buried. some are reporting as much as five feet of snow and still counting. if you are traveling there check for potential delays because they are still looking at more snow. the temperatures right now across the bay area, a wide variety. 48 in fairfield, but 61 where there is a south wind in half moon bay and 60 in hayward. exploratorium camera showing you the cloud cover on the increase. showers arrive during the morning commute. looking at brief, heavy rain on thursday and it is looking wet on saturday ease -- especially for the cal stanford game. morning showers is what we are looking at. thursday's fast mover is right here and saturday's wetter system is back here.
warmer storms for saturday. when you look at our computer animation, 8:00 when you are taking the kids to cool you may want to make sure they have their umbrellas with them. if you are grabbing food. at 5:00 p.m. the showers taper for the evening rush hour. the second storm arrives and it has a little more punch. 10:00 a.m. thursday, dumping moderate to heavy rain. noontime, still crossing the heart of the bay area. we will see pockets of heavy rain through the evening rush hour especially for parts of the east bay. by thursday evening it winds down and the rainfall totals with tomorrow's system up to three quarters of an inch. a 10th to a third of an inch. the second system on thursday brings more rain. it is looking like two to two and a half inches in the mountains. that system will bring snow to
