SB235,1,2 1An Act to create 340.01 (6u) and 349.13 (1h) of the statutes; relating to:
2highway parking of motor vehicles owned by carsharing organizations.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the state and local authorities generally have the power to
regulate the stopping, standing, and parking of motor vehicles on highways. This
bill authorizes the Department of Transportation (DOT), with respect to state trunk
highways outside of corporate limits, and local authorities, with respect to highways
under their jurisdiction including state trunk highways or connecting highways
within corporate limits, to allow the parking of motor vehicles owned by carsharing
organizations on a highway in a zone where the time of parking is limited by official
signs, markers, or parking meters without regard to the time limits posted. DOT or
a local authority may enter into an agreement with a carsharing organization to
authorize parking and to establish fees and conditions of operation. This bill defines
"carsharing organization" as a business entity that is a rental company that offers
a membership service in which members share type 1 automobiles, the use of which
may be purchased from the business entity on the basis of trip, trip distance, or trip
duration.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
