    California's first lady caught parking illegally

    SACRAMENTO— First lady Maria Shriver appears to need a refresher on California traffic laws, based on a video posted today that shows her parking in a red zone.

    Two weeks ago, she apologized after the Web site TMZ.com posted photographs and a video of her violating the state's handsfree cell phone law.

    On Monday, the Web site posted a video showing her walking toward her Cadillac Escalade, which is clearly parked in a red zone. The site says Shriver parked there nearly an hour while visiting a doctor's office in Santa Monica.

    "I regret that I made a mistake. I take responsibility for it," Shriver said in a statement issued through her office.

    Santa Monica Police Lt. P.J. Guido said tickets for parking in a red zone, which is reserved for emergency vehicles, can be issued after the fact if there is sufficient evidence of a violation. A citation can bring a $61 fine.

    He cautioned that it was not immediately clear from the video when and where the violation occurred.

    Guido said Shriver has an official placard to put on her dashboard when she is on government business, although no placard is visible in the TMZ video.

    The first lady seems to have learned at least one lesson: The red zone video shows her chatting on her cell phone as she scoots into the Escalade, then putting it down before driving away.

    Perhaps the governor needs to assign a Chippie to follow TMZ around. I wonder how many traffic and parking violations they commit per day.

    Or else he could get Maria a driver.

      Isn't Anyone Tired of This Crap Yet?

      OMG, another celebrity committed a minor infraction of the law, just like the regular folks do every day. Let's call out the National guard, have them shave her head and walk her naked through a mob so they can taunt her.

      You know, if this was really that big of a deal to TMZ, their papar***i would have called SMPD and asked for a Parking Control Officer to come out and cite Maria's car, instead waiting to see how long she parked there so they could make a bigger headline out of it.

        She was also caught on her cellphone while driving which is a new law that was passed you can not use your cell phone call or text.. or even have it at hand in that... unless it is an emergency or hazard situation... hazard is being on the phone in itself... hehe

          And how have you determined that she was not using the phone at that time to report a hazard or an emergency? Remember where the burder of proof rests.

            Infractions are for the little people to obey!

                I don't care for her or Arnold but I think its really stupid for the media to make a big deal out of this. Arnold is basically destroying Cali and the media covers a flippin' parking ticket? I can't believe some ppl are so into gossip like this..


                I could care less about this, why am I even posting here
