Park smart! Here is what the yellow painted curb means, as well as white, green and other colored curb markings indicate in San Diego. Know the rules and which zones you can and can’t park so you don’t get a parking ticket:
Yellow-painted curbs are commercial loading zones. You are not allowed to park in yellow curb spaces during the day but for night games and Sundays, yellow spots can be a gold mine. You are allowed to park in yellow spaces after 6pm
and anytime on Sundays and holidays.
Green curbs designate a short-term time limit zone, usually 15 minutes, 30 minutes or 2 hours. These rules usually expire in the evenings, more information will be painted on the curb or nearby sign. You may park here on Sundays.
Curbs painted blue indicate a parking zone for disabled persons (or people driving disabled persons) only. Your car must have the placard displayed.
White curbs are passenger loading zones. You may stop for three minutes at a white curb (ten minutes if in front of a hotel.) No parking at white spaces ever.
No parking/no stopping any time in a red zone, whether the vehicle is attended or not.
