Curbs

Curb colors are used to indicate parking restrictions.

A RED curb indicates that ALL parking, stopping, or standing (see our SIGNS page for definitions) is prohibited. The sole exception is for transit buses, which may stop ONLY at a signed BUS STOP.

A BLUE curb indicates that UNLIMITED parking is permitted, providing the vehicle has either a HANDICAPPED placard hanging from the rear view mirror, or a HANDICAPPED license plate.

A YELLOW curb is used to indicate parking, stopping, or standing is permitted, for delivery or drop-off, usually for commercial purposes.

A GREEN curb indicates that parking is permitted, but only for a period of time. The permissive times are either placed on an adjacent sign, or painted directly onto the curb itself.

A WHITE curb is similar to the YELLOW curb, but is a general purpose curb, for dropping off passengers, mail, etc. As a general rule, the driver must remain in the vehicle.

If a curb is unpainted, then parking is permitted, with no restrictions, unless a sign is used to indicate otherwise.
