    Default "No Parking" vs. "No Stopping" Laws in California

    What is the difference between "No Parking" and "No Stopping" in California?

    If there are these two different signs, then there must be some situations in which your car could be stopped, but it wouldn't be a violation of a "No Parking" sign.

    That is correct.

    VC 463: “Park or parking” shall mean the standing of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, otherwise than temporarily for the purpose of and while actually engaged in loading or unloading merchandise or passengers.

    VC 587: “Stop or stopping” when prohibited shall mean any cessation of movement of a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except when necessary to avoid conflict with other traffic or in compliance with the direction of a police officer or official traffic control device or signal.

    What happened in your situation?
