Accordingly, is it legal to paint the curb?
Painting house numbers on curbs is illegal in some areas of the country. If you have done your homework to find yourself legally able to paint your house number on the curb, paint a number using a stencil, large font and a paint color that can be easily read from a moving vehicle at the farthest side of your street.
Beside this, why are some curbs painted red?
No stopping, standing, or parking. A bus may stop at a red zone marked for buses. Red is also used to designate fire lanes at schools or “No Parking” areas. Curb parking signs provide information that supplements curb markings.
Colored curb zones are painted to indicate parking prohibitions or restrictions. Additional regulations may be posted on signs and apply regardless of curb color. Red, white and blue curb regulations are in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week unless otherwise indicated by a sign.
