Triple Fines Downtown for New Year's Eve, Parking Restrictions

Downtown restrictions and closures for New Year's Eve.
Downtown restrictions and closures for New Year's Eve.
Santa Cruz Police are calling in the entire department to crackdown on New Year's revelers.

They have also zoned the downtown a "Safety Enforcement Zone," meaning that fines for things such as drinking in public triple and can amount to $900. It's the same thing they do on Halloween and Fourth of July.

Some roads will be closed and parked cars will be towed.

They are: Knight Street, from 8 a.m. Dec. 31 to 2 a.m. Jan. 1; North Pacific Ave. from River to Water streets, 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31 to 12:45 a.m. Jan. 1; Bulkhead Street from 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31 to 12:45 a.m. Jan. 1; Water St. between River and Center streets, from 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31 to 12:45 a.m. Jan. 1.

There will be no parking on Front Street between Water and River streets from 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31 to 12:45 a.m. Jan. 1.

And no parking on Pacific Ave from Locust to Water streets from 10:30 p.m. Dec. 31 to 12:45 a.m. Jan. 1.

Well, parking is going to be a pain, but you can get around downtown by calling Santa Cruz Pedicab (831-222-0789) and you can enjoy the festivities in our Giant Pumpkin Party Cab (with disco ball a-shimmering).
