The MPA only covers you as long as you are in the vehicle. The 30.06/30.07 would still apply when you get out of the vehicle.
i guess my instructor was wrong about a lot of stuff cause everything he told us so far has apparently been wrong according to this forum... he said you can carry on any public or private parking lot/parking garage/driveway cause they arent covered under the 30.06/30.07 signs.
30.06/07 covers 'property', not 'premises' so includes any real property that is posted.
see he told us the signs were only valid for the premises not the property so i guess he needs to update his info?
He needs to get his info straight. It has always been this way. Unfortunately many instructors are teaching incorrect info like this. I can see those areas that are grey, but this one is a very straight forward so he should be teaching it correctly.
what if the parking lot isnt owned by the building/business owner? a scenario comes to mind where I used to work for a company that had 30.06/30.07 signs posted on their doors. (Zodiac Seats. some of you may be familiar with it) however the gravel parking lot isnt actually owned by zodiac. it is a "public parking lot" would that parking lot area be exempt from those signs?
