  • The film company is responsible for the posting of "No Parking" signs.
  • "No Parking" signs may be posted only in areas approved by the Film Office.
  • "No Parking" signs must be posted 24 hours in advance of the permitted starting time of filming in commercial areas -- but no more than 48 hours in advance. In residential areas, No Parking signs must be posted at least 48 hours in advance of the permitted starting time of filming. "No Parking" signs posted any later are not legally enforceable. In any case, no vehicles may be towed without approval of the Film Liaison and/or a Sheriff's deputy assigned to the production.
  • "No Parking" signs are available at the Film Office, located at City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard, 3rd floor. Film companies will be given the No Parking signs, and a copy of the correct wording for the sign to be copied and attached to each sign.

  • Crew cars are prohibited from parking on City streets, whether posted or not. Posting is for production equipment and vehicles only.
  • "No Parking" signs must be removed by the permitee or a designated agent of the permitee immediately after filming is completed.
