FIRE LANE CHANGES FOR SCHOOLSThe Cobb County Fire Lane Ordinance was amended to include a provision for student pick-up at schools. Per
the Fire Marshall's Office, no one is allowed to park in a Fire Lane, whether there is a driver in
the vehicle or not, at any time other than the following:
- 30 minutes prior to the end of the school day and 30 minutes after the end of the school day (this does not
include the After School Program nor any other activity at the school)
- Passengers actively loading or unloading during the day (this would cover students unloading in the morning at the
beginning of the school day)
- Stopping or parking a vehicle in a fire lane at any other time is prohibited, unless passengers are actively loading or
- Enforcement of this new provision will begin on April 9, 2012. Fire lanes can be identified by “No Parking Fire Lane”
signage and/or curbing that is red in color. Fire lane violations currently result in a fine of $135.00.
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the
