Traffic Bureau


In every-day and oft-hectic living, where most citizens frequently recoil at the mere utterance of the word, “traffic” or “parking” (in any context), members of the Traffic Bureau, which total 58 dedicated, hard-working employees, do all they can to ensure that contacts with citizens are as positive and productive as possible.

Because traffic and parking literally impact all citizens to one extent or another, it naturally follows that Traffic Bureau’s Charter is very far-reaching and encompasses (but not limited to) the following major functional areas of responsibility:




  • Traffic enforcement (citations and arrests).
  • Traffic collision investigations.
  • Impoundment of vehicles incidental to arrests and/or citations.
  • DUI and Driver's License Checkpoints.
  • Citizen-prompted traffic complaint investigations and “speed trailer” deployment.
  • Parades, Special Events, Labor Demonstrations, etc.
  • Bicycle and pedestrian Safety School for juveniles.
  • Driver and pedestrian education for senior citizens.
  • Education and enforcement details in high collision areas.



  • Enforcement of BMC and CVC parking statutes.
  • Traffic control at scenes of major incidents and call-outs.


  • Assist and direct students at select intersections to assure safe arrival to and departure from Burbank Public Elementary Schools.
  • Veritable 100% history of no mishaps in very congested, high-risk environments.


  • Issue film permits pursuant to BMC statutes and City policies related to filming on public and private property, including studios and sound stages.
  • Coordinate with Burbank Fire Dept., City Attorney, Film Permit Services & Production Companies, etc. to assure compliance with laws and policies.


  • Assist citizens face-to-face, telephonically, and via email to address needs and requests to ensure a very high level of service and swift resolution of issues.


  • Accept in-person, by-mail, and by drop-box payments for Burbank Parking Citations.
