Parking Compliance


The parking compliance program:

  • Enforces posted parking regulations in an effort to improve compliance with local and state parking regulations.
  • Parking may be restricted for safety reasons, near a crosswalks, intersection, and on narrow or high volume roadways.
  • There may be parking time limits set to support the needs of businesses; or parking may be reserved for special uses, such as individuals with disabilities and bus zones.
  • When vehicles are parked in violation of a posted regulation, a parking citation may be issued.

To learn more about common parking violations and tips on how to avoid parking citations please review these commonly violated parking regulations. If you have questions, please contact Parking Compliance
