Normal Parking Day


Red Flag Parking Restrictions

In 1998 the Beverly Hills City Council unanimously accepted the recommendation of the Public Safety Committee to implement the proposed restrictions on parking within the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) on days of extreme fire hazard, also known as Red Flag days. 


In light of the outcomes of recent large fires in the State, the Fire Department has found it necessary to revisit this issue.  We have determined that expanding the Red Flag no parking restrictions is necessary in order to protect life safety and improve our ability to evacuate residents while simultaneously deploying fire apparatus in to the Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (VHFHSZ) during a wildfire. The Fire Department recommendations were evaluated by the City’s Department of Transportation and the Police Department prior to submission to the Traffic and Parking Commission.
