Traffic Safety at Redondo Beach Schools
 
Traffic safety is always a priority for the Redondo Beach Police Department. We understand that school drop-off and pick-up times can be challenging but please remember your duty to obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions. Many of these laws are intended to address the safety of children and other pedestrians who may be difficult to see due to traffic volume and environmental factors.
  
California Vehicle Code Section 22500 states: A person shall not stop, park, or leave standing any vehicle whether attended or unattended, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the directions of a peace officer or official traffic control device, in any of the following places:
 
(a) Within an intersection, except adjacent to curbs as may be permitted by local ordinance.
 
(b) On a crosswalk, except that a bus engaged as a common carrier or a taxicab may stop in an unmarked crosswalk to load or unload passengers when authorized by the legislative body of a city pursuant to an ordinance.
 
(e) (1) In front of a public or private driveway, except that a bus engaged as a common carrier, schoolbus, or a taxicab may stop to load or unload passengers when authorized by local authorities pursuant to an ordinance.
 
(f) On a portion of a sidewalk.
 
(h) On the roadway side of a vehicle stopped, parked, or standing at the curb or edge of a highway, except for a schoolbus.
 
(l) In front of or upon that portion of a curb that has been cut down, lowered, or constructed to provide wheelchair accessibility to the sidewalk.
 
The Redondo Beach Municipal Code also requires a permit to stop or park a vehicle in several areas near the high school like Vincent Street and Vincent Park. Stopping or parking a vehicle in these areas will result in a citation.
 
Parking violation citations can and will be issued even if the vehicle operator is present.  You do not need to be contacted to receive a citation and even if you drive away prior to being contacted a parking citation will be mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. Together we can create a safer environment for students, and citations can be avoided.

Thank you for your help.
