We were pulled over at 1 AM by a CHP officer that was hanging out right there at that turnoff. I don't know what that guy had going on but it was a strange and awkward experience. Anyway, they do roam around looking in vehicles, but they tend to only scrutinize vehicles in the valley it seems. I don't feel what you describe is against the spirit of the rule, but at the same time, expect to be given a citation.

I can easily sleep in my vehicle pretty much anywhere without worry. It is pretty nice actually.
