Red curb painting has been installed adjacent to fire hydrants, curb ramps, and crosswalks in congested areas throughout the City to improve public safety. Please be advised that curbs painted in red indicate no stopping, standing or parking under any circumstances and are enforced 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
The City of Watsonville would like to advise residents that full parking enforcement has begun, so please be sure to obey parking restrictions indicated by posted signs, curb colors, or meters. Citations for red curb parking violations are $47.
