ridiculously stringent parking regulations, overly frequent and limited permit requirements
Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) January 9, 2009
The legislation putting the "RV friendly" logo to use on California highways was signed by Governor Schwarzenegger in 2008. The legislation puts the easily recognizable "RV friendly" logo to use on highway signs indicating which facilities are available for RVers when it comes to gas, food, lodging and other roadside businesses. The popular coastal state of California has been called RV friendly since their adoption of the legislation, but some question their definition of "friendly."
Clint Ethington of Pedata RV Center suggests that "…as they continue to uphold previous regulations making owning, using and storing recreational vehicles more than difficult their adoption of the RV Friendly Road Sign Initiative means a little bit less to those who are aware of the state's actual attitude towards RVers and RV owners. Little things can make a big difference in changing the overall attitude, but one positive addition doesn't erase the negatives. They have to be discussed." Clint mentioned "ridiculously stringent parking regulations, overly frequent and limited permit requirements" amongst other things.
The RV Friendly Sign Initiative:
The actual logo is a round, yellow reflector symbol with "RV" placed prominently in the middle. Businesses are expected to purchase the highway signs for display with the intent of bringing more business their way. The following states already have signs in use: Minnesota, Iowa, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Michigan, Oregon, Louisiana, Tennessee, Washington, Florida and Texas. The motorhome Friendly sign initiative is supported by RV enthusiasts as well as prominent groups in support of the RV industry and continues to spread across the nation.
