AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 56-5-2510, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO STOPPING, STANDING, OR PARKING OUTSIDE OF A BUSINESS OR RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT, SO AS TO PERMIT A VEHICLE USED SOLELY FOR COLLECTING MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE OR RECOVERED MATERIALS TO STOP OR STAND ON A ROAD, STREET, OR HIGHWAY TO COLLECT SOLID WASTE OR RECOVERED MATERIALS.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Municipal solid waste and recovered material collection
SECTION 1. Section 56-5-2510 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 56-5-2510. (A) No person shall stop, park, or leave standing a vehicle, whether attended or unattended, upon the roadway outside a business or residential district when it is practicable to stop, park, or leave the vehicle off the roadway. An unobstructed width of the highway opposite a standing vehicle must be left for the free passage of other vehicles and a clear view of the stopped vehicle must be available from a distance of two hundred feet in each direction upon the highway.
(B) This section and Sections 56-5-2530 and 56-5-2560 do not apply to the driver of a vehicle which is disabled making it impossible to avoid stopping and temporarily leaving the vehicle in the roadway.
(C) Notwithstanding another provision of law, a vehicle used solely for the purpose of collecting municipal solid waste as defined in Section 44-96-40(46) or recovered materials as defined in Section 44-96-40(34) may stop or stand on the road, street, or highway for the purpose of collecting solid waste or recovered materials. The vehicle shall maintain flashing hazard lights when engaged in stopping or standing to collect solid waste or recovered materials."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 6th day of May, 1996.
