SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — During California's stay at home order, city leaders say they will not be enforcing most parking citations.

Parking enforcement in the City of San Diego was placed on a holiday or Sunday schedule, unless otherwise stated on the meter.

The city will still be enforcing red, white, blue and time enforcement areas due to public safety concerns.

"Just make sure you read the time limit signs or the signs on the meter. If the sign says 'Except Sundays and Holidays' (which I believe most do say that) then you do not need to pay. If the sign on the meter says 'Everyday' then you do need to pay," said Anna Hill, with the city, said.

No timeline was placed on the parking enforcement changes.

More information on the city's parking enforcement can be found online.

While the current parking rules may entice residents to go outside, city leaders are urging locals to remain inside except for essential trips during the coronavirus stay at home order.
