Even parking tickets get a day off now and then. Thankfully on Veterans’ Day , the city of San Francisco is going to reward you with a ticket-free day of parking..sort of. 

Veterans’ Day Parking Rules Overview:

NOT ENFORCED

  • M-F Daytime Street Sweeping: Not enforced (M-F street sweeping that is, the few streets that have 7-day street sweeping, like Market Street, will still be enforced)
  • Residential Permit Parking: Not enforced
  • Commuter Towaway: Not enforced
  • Unmetered Yellow/White/Green Zones: Not enforced – Please note this is ONLY for “unmetered zones” – i.e. spots without a parking meter. If there’s parking meter, then the colored zone rules are in affect.

But please note:
– Hazards are always subject to tickets and towing
– Posted 1-2 hour parking time limit areas and Night-Time Seven-Day-a-Week Street Sweeping (such as Market Street) will be enforced
– Meter customers are advised to check parking meters to verify enforcement time limits and amounts

ENFORCED:

  • Parking Meters: Enforced city-wide – yes, even on Veterans’ DayLike all days, you are allowed to park at a broken meter, but the posted time limit still applies.
    The only holidays where parking meters aren’t enforced is Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
  • Red Zone: Enforced
  • Blue Zone: Enforced (Handicap)
  • Green Zone (Metered): Enforced (short term parking – usually 10 mins, Monday-Saturday, 10 am to 6 pm)
  • Yellow Curbs (Metered) : Commercial loading & unloading parking zones are enforced, but there’s no tow-away (you can still get a ticket)
  • White Zone (Metered): Passenger loading zones are enforced (5 minute limit), but only while the business (and some apartment buildings) is open. If the business that paid for the zone (usually the one right in front of the white zone) is closed, it’s free parking. (Beware… some businesses are 24 hours even though they may look closed. Our parking enforcement source recommends you find a security guard for the building and ask.)
  • Posted 1-2 hour parking limits: Enforced
  • 7 Day a Week Street Sweeping: Everyday street sweeping such as along Market Street is still enforced, even on holidays.
