Overnight parking permits allow residents to park on Cerritos streets from 3 a.m. to 5 a.m. Street parking without a permit is prohibited in Cerritos between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., seven days a week, to help keep streets clear and to allow neighbors and Sheriff’s deputies to quickly identify suspicious vehicles. For information about applying for a permit, call the City’s Community Safety Division at (562) 916-1266 or see below.
Temporary Parking Permits
Temporary parking permits are issued to passenger vehicles for one day to two weeks at a time. These permits are issued when you have a visitor, if your home is under construction or remodeling or if the need arises due to an emergency. Cerritos residents are allowed 30 days of temporary parking permits in a calendar year per household. Permits are not issued to commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles (excluding motor homes) or motorcycles.
The Community Safety Division requires the year, make, model and license plate number of the vehicle to print a temporary parking permit.
Residents can obtain a temporary parking permit by bringing in the required information to the Community Safety Office between 8 a.m. and midnight, Monday through Friday, and from 7 p.m. to midnight on weekends. Temporary parking permits in excess of one day can be obtained by phone if the resident calls at least three days in advance, any day during the week, of the period requested. This will enable staff to mail the permit to the resident. One-day overnight parking permits are also available by calling the City’s Community Safety Division at (562) 916-1266 from 7 a.m. to midnight Monday through Friday, and 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday. Residents may also obtain a one-day permit between the hours of midnight and 2:59 a.m., by calling the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station at (562) 860-0044.
