New signs just went up saying cars will be towed if parked overnight. There has been an increase in Walter White RVs and trash on the access road to the West Tiger 3/Tradition Lake trailhead. Some have been there all Summer. Beware if you like a Sunset hike up Cableline.

Good.  Presumably even our incompetent bureaucrats wont tow a working car at 8pm off cableline...

@Malachai: Did they specify what "overnight" means? I use these trails extensively in winter - often leaving by 4 pm and returning in the dark with headlamps. I'd hate to come back and find my car towed.

FWIW: In my HOA there some residents that complain about other residents parking in the guest parking areas.   In discussions with the towing company,  they are unwilling to tow vehicles parked for less that 24 hours.   But OTH you can get towed in minutes in downtown Seattle if you park in a red zone. 

In areas where "camping" is a chronic problem is Seattle,  there are "no parking 2am to 5am" signs.  That seems like a better regulation that a vaguely defined "no overnight parking".

The signs do not specify just a picture of a tow truck. I fear the sherif would be open to a charge of selective enforcement if only the decrepit campers were towed. OSAT has a meeting there most Thursday nights.

Who parks overnight there anyway?

Sketchy camper vans with trash piled next to them in the ditch.

There're been a number of cars parked there for 6 months now, one talked to me and said he was a tent city resident but I'm not sure that'll work on a tow truck.

The Walter white RVs are getting annoying... I always notice them poking their heads up to see who's coming down the road, and I've seen one that was smoking a rose pipe duck inside as an officer drove down and then ignore the knocking on the door. People hanging out in their cars all day at a trailhead is weird either way.

Let's hope overnight means 2am or so, because I like WT1 sunsets.

Wow!  The last car that talked to me was an '84 Chrysler LeBaron.

I figure that cars parked there less than 24 hours will be fine, particularly late model cars without a back log of unpaid parking tickets.
