DALY CITY UNVEILS PERMIT PARKING PROGRAM FOR LOCAL DRIVERS OF COMMERCIAL VEHICLES


Daly City – Daly City’s six-month pilot program aimed at curbing parking issues with commercial vehicles will take effect on Tuesday, July 1st.

Designed to address concerns of residential neighborhoods impacted by truck parking, as well as local business owners with commercial vehicles, the new ordinance will designate certain streets in Daly City as commercial vehicle parking (CVP) only. The marked zones will provide drivers of permitted commercial vehicles a place to park their trucks from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m., seven days a week.

The new law includes penalties under the Daly City Municipal Code. Trucks parked illegally outside the permitted parking zone will receive a $250 citation. Vehicles parked in a CVP zone without displaying the city-issued permit will get a $100 ticket. Non-commercial vehicles found parked in a permitted zone will be fined $25 for each violation.

Commercial vehicles eligible for a parking permit include trucks, buses, limousines exceeding 19 feet in length, and trailers attached to a truck, and exclude pick-ups. No more than two permits will be issued for each qualified Daly City resident or local business owner.

Residents and business owners may apply in person for a commercial vehicle parking permit from the Finance Department at City Hall, located at 333 – 90th Street in Daly City. Applicants must bring a valid driver’s license, vehicle registration and a recent utility bill. Each permit application costs $100, and once issued, will remain valid through June 30th of the following year.

For additional information, contact the Finance Department at (650) 991-8046.
