Is It Illegal to Sleep in Your Car in California?

Answer

It is not illegal to sleep in your car in California. If you need to sleep in your car, try to find a well lit parking lot of a store that is open 24 hours a day. Keep in mind when finding a place to sleep that most cities do not want you to sleep in a car that is parked on the street.

That would depend on where you park. If you are on your own property there is no law against it. Other places may have parking by permit only areas during the overnight hours. Parking lots will depend on the owners of those lots.
