Update 10/15/2020
  • As Riverside united to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the City temporarily suspended the parking enforcement program during street sweeping days and relaxed enforcement of other parking regulations. As the City moves into a recovery phase, we are asking you to help us reduce pollutants from entering our local waterways and assist us to keep your neighborhoods clean by not parking on-street during Street Sweeping days.
  • To ease the reinstatement of street sweeping practices, warnings will be issued until parking citations resume on July 1, 2020.
  • All other violations have been phased into compliance and as of 10/15/2020, all violations of the California Vehicle Code and Riverside Municipal Code are enforced throughout the city
  • We ask that you park responsibly and be courteous to others. For additional information please visit https://www.riversideca.gov/publicworks/ or call the Call Center at (951) 826-5311
