The Ordinance

On July 10, 2023, City Council adopted Ordinance 1467 to amend Chapters 10.32.150 and 10.32.155 of the Daly City Municipal Code - Oversized Vehicles and Commercial Parking Permits. This Ordinance restricts the parking of oversized vehicles on residential streets between 5:00 p.m.-7:00 a.m.

An “oversized vehicle” is defined as:

  1. A single vehicle or combination of vehicles having more than two axles;
  2. A vehicle with more than two wheels upon any single axle;
  3. A singe vehicle or combination of vehicles 22 ft. or more in length;
  4. A single vehicle or combination of vehicles 6 ft. or more in width.

 Additional “oversized vehicles” are defined in Section 10.32.150 of the Daly City Municipal Code. The Amendment to this Code is Ordinance 1467.


Daly City residents have frequently complained about the overnight parking of limousines, truck trailers, buses and other commercial vehicles in residential areas. Residents who rely upon such commercial vehicles for their livelihood have also voiced their concerns about the lack of legally acceptable parking areas for their vehicles within Daly City. In an effort to meet the needs of the neighborhoods and working residents alike, the City has developed a program offering a solution for both groups.

Program Overview

Certain street segments are designated for parking only by commercial vehicles displaying a city-issued permit; to view maps of the referenced street segments, visit the Commercial Vehicle Parking Zones page. All Commercial Vehicle Parking Zones are designated as two-hour limit parking zones between the hours of 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
