A.   The city finds that parking, movement, and control of traffic on the public rights of way should be regulated to promote traffic safety, to enhance the smooth flow of traffic, and to fairly allocate parking spaces among the public.
   B.   Limiting parking in some areas of the city helps facilitate commerce by promoting frequent turnover for shopping, sightseeing, and tourism activities rather than commuter or long term parking.
   C.   Effective enforcement of parking regulations and other traffic control devices is required to meet the objectives of this title, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of drivers and pedestrians using public rights of way. (Ord. 3282 §2, 2007)
