(a) To Park any motor vehicle that is carrying, towing or otherwise displaying a commercial advertising sign on any public street or in any public or private parking lot in the City for the primary purpose of displaying a commercial advertising sign, including any display that does no more than propose a commercial transaction. This prohibition shall not apply to a passenger vehicle with maximum occupancy of six passengers, or to vehicles Parked for a primary purpose other than displaying a commercial advertising sign, including:
(1) Vehicles Parked while loading or unloading passengers or goods;
(2) Vehicles Parked while engaged in the delivery of services; and
(3) Passenger vehicles Parked within 600 feet of the residence of the registered owner of the vehicle.
(b) Findings and Purpose. The Board of Supervisors finds that there is a growing practice of Parking large vehicles such as trucks and vans in the City's public streets and parking lots for the purpose of displaying commercial advertising. The Board of Supervisors finds that this practice: (i) creates aesthetic blight; (ii) contributes to the critical shortage of parking spaces Parking Spaces; (iii) causes traffic safety hazards by distracting members of the public who use public thoroughfares, including drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians. The purpose of this Section is to counteract these negative effects and protect and promote public safety and quality of life in the City. This Section is not intended to regulate non-commercial speech, including non-commercial advertising and signage. (63.3)
