Know the Facts

It is unsafe and illegal to park in a way that:

  • Creates a hazard in the designated roadway
  • Blocks sightlines at intersections and driveways
  • Blocks access such as a driveway, emergency access gate, or fire lane

Never park in the roadway. 
The roadway is defined as the space between the white (fog) line and the yellow (center) line. If ANY part of your vehicle (tire, mirror) is between the white and yellow lines, your vehicle is a hazard and can be towed immediately.Park Safely, Park Legally Stay within Fog Lines Graphic

Never park in areas signed NO PARKING.
No parking signs protect sightlines and prevent dangerous parking that may block the roadway or emergency access.

Park Safely, Park Legally Signs Graphic

If you park in a neighborhood, do not block driveways or sightlines at intersections.

  • Do not park within five feet of a driveway.
  • Do not park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.
  • Do not park within 30 feet of a stop sign, yield sign or traffic signal.

If you park on the shoulder, be hyper aware of roadway hazards. 

  • Check for bikes and oncoming cars BEFORE you open your door.
  • Leash and control your pet before the pet exits the car.
  • Walk single file if possible and keep kids and pets close for the walk from the car to the trailhead.
