Did you know that there is no day in which you cannot get a parking ticket?
And I’m not talking about something really egregious like wrongly parking in a handicapped spot.
San Francisco literally gives out tickets 7 days a week.
701 to 869 Clay Street has street sweeping Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays from midnight to 5 am.
If you went to a bar in nearby North Beach or a hotel room party in the Hilton on Saturday night, you’d wake up to a nice $55 street sweeping ticket.
You can get tickets almost any time of day, for that matter.
Downtown generally has street sweeping late at night, with the rest of San Francisco generally in the early part of the day.
201 to 331 Chester Avenue, however, has street sweeping on Thursdays between 1 pm and 3 pm.
And if you don’t get caught by street sweeping between midnight and 3 pm, tow away zones take up the slack. There are 7 am to 9 am towaway zones, 4 pm to 7 pm towaway zones, 6 am to 11 pm towaway zones, etc etc.
The only hour you’re safe to park?
Right before midnight: 11 pm to midnight.
That’s the only time you can’t get hit for street sweeping, towaway zones, expired meter or commercial meters.
You can, however, still get a ticket for not curbing your wheels, or parking more than 72 hours.
I guess you can never be completely safe.
