This week we have been giving courtesy notices to drivers using the red bus zone to drop off their children. After the Winter Break, CVPD will be enforcing CV Municipal Code 10.52.060 * .
The red Bus Zone is for loading and unloading of school buses and licensed childcare providers only. Cars will no longer be allowed to enter, drop off, or pick up in the red Bus Zone.
Not only is this practice against the Vehicle Code, it is unsafe. We appreciate your cooperation by following safe traffic patterns and using the yellow loading/unloading zone only to drop off and pick up your children. We suggest that families plan to arrive to school a few minutes earlier than usual to avoid the last-minute congestion and rush. School starts promptly at 8:15 a.m.
*No stopping zones and no parking areas – Driver obedience required. When curb markings or parking control devices are in place, no operator of any vehicle shall stop, stand or park such vehicle adjacent to any such legible curb marking or parking control device in violation of any of the provisions of this chapter. (Ord. 2670, 1996; Ord. 973 § 1, 1966; prior code § 19.10.3(B)).
