After the grace period, general parking permits are required Monday through Friday, 8 am to midnight, 8 am to 4 pm on Saturdays. No permits are required on Sundays.
A red curb violation occurs when a vehicle stops at the curb, not just when the vehicle is parked at the curb. The law is very specific, no stopping, standing or parking allowed at a red curb. An officer does not need to make contact with a driver to issue a red curb violation, in the event a violation occurs, the officer simply writes the citation and the violator will be notified via mail. Just because a violator leaves, does not mean the citation cannot go forward.
To park in a green reserve space, a vehicle must display a black employee permit. Only an authorized employee of this institution is authorized to utilize the green parking stalls. Family members using the employee permits are not authorized to park in the green reserve spaces and may be cited for the offense. Security and sheriff spaces are strictly forbidden at any time.
The Antelope Valley College safety and security department enforces all state, city and local laws including the California Vehicle Codes.
