San Francisco reveals streets where overnight RV parking will be prohibited

The ban on overnight parking for recreational vehicles on city streets was approved months ago, but now the exact streets for the prohibition have been decided.

The ban targets vehicles that are more than 22 feet long or 7 feet tall, and it includes the hours between midnight and 6 a.m. The Board of Supervisors approved the restrictions in late September, but the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which manages parking, is now moving forward with the exact streets.

A transit agency committee will hear the proposal today to establish the restrictions on 13 streets in the Bayview district and Potrero Hill and 23 streets in the Sunset and Richmond districts. The ban for the western portion of The City includes long stretches of the Great Highway and the streets bordering Sunset Boulevard, all of which stretch for miles.

The issue of people sleeping in vehicles on city streets became pronounced in two neighborhoods:  Bayview and Sunset. Supervisor Malia Cohen and then-Supervisor Carmen Chu said at the time of the board vote that the vehicles are an eyesore and can lead to health issues, such as trash and excrement.

Other supervisors and homeless advocates argue that the vehicles are used as shelter for people who might otherwise be homeless and that The City should not criminalize people for living in RVs.
