As a follow up to our prior Senior Volunteer Patrol article on the detached non-motorized vehicle, three hour rule, here is some more information on the oversized vehicle ordinance. This information may pertain to more of you who have motorhomes or visitors arriving in a motorhome.

The oversize vehicle ordinance pertains to any vehicle or combination of vehicles over 24 feet long or 8 feet wide. It is also prohibited from stopping, standing, or parking in one location upon any public street, alley or highway within the City for a period of more than three consecutive hours. The vehicle must move more than 500 feet from the original parking position to constitute a change in parking position.

A Coronado resident may obtain a permit allowing temporary parking allowing temporary parking of an oversized vehicle under their control for 48 hours to load or unload for non-commercial purposes in preparation for or after a trip or if a resident has been issued a permit.

A Coronado resident may also get a temporary guest permit for an oversized vehicle for 48 hours under the following conditions.

Permit issued to the Coronado resident for a visiting guest.

Parked at the Coronado resident’s home.

Not used for overnight lodging.

Not a safety hazard.

No more than three guest permits can be issued to a resident in a calendar year. There are no consecutive periods for an oversize vehicle permit. Only one guest permit per resident at one time.

Permits can be obtained at the front counter at the Police Department from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday only. Any permit issued with an OS number should be on the dashboard and visible.

I do hope this has been helpful. In future issues we will try to keep you informed of what these curbs on our busy streets mean to you – yellow, green, blue and red.
