If you have a residential parking permit and want to leave your car in your neighborhood between December 22, 2017 and January 1, 2018 the rule is as follows:
- If Street Cleaning doesn’t happen on the fourth week or fifth week, you’re safe!
- If Street Cleaning happens weekly on a Monday, you’re also safe! Explanation: Street Cleaning is suspended on Christmas Day (Monday December 25) and New Year’s Day (Monday January 1).
- If Street Cleaning happens weekly on any other day than Monday, don’t park in your neighborhood and check the SF Xmas parking map above!
