About Parking

Local parking conditions and tricks always vary based on population density. Local parking in rural locations has different rules than parking in congested urban locations. Parking in northern states during the winter also has its own share of hazards when snow storms hit. Below are a few tips based on urban areas, rural areas, and winter local parking. Rural areas have few restrictions on where and how to park. However, be careful when assuming that all areas are acceptable for parking. Free local parking can be found in a town or a local road. Parking is never allowed on interstates or roads in state parks, and cars are towed. Some locations are "no parking zones" but are unmarked. Also be careful about finding local parking on private land. Parking on private land is also not acceptable. In rural areas, look for local parking by tourist centers, unmarked restaurant parking lots, or rest areas. Finding local parking in cities is considerably more difficult than in rural areas. Parking is restricted and requires payment for almost all street parking in downtown areas. Check to see if there is a parking meter on the street beside the parking space. Parking meters take quarters and usually require 25 cents for each fifteen minutes. When the parking meter expires, a transit officer has the right to ticket the car.

More on Parking

Finding local parking for residents or people who commute to urban areas often costs a large amount of money. Parking spaces can be purchased by the month or by the week from city local parking lots or private local parking lots. Night venues will often rent their parking lots during the day, while offices and city parking lots (designed for commuters from the suburbs) will often drastically reduce their prices in the evening for events. Some urban areas make parking free after a certain time. If commuting into an urban area, find out if your employer has an arrangement for parking, or if your corporation has a lot of their own. For states that receive large amounts of snow in the winter, drivers should be aware of snow emergency rules and plow routes. In urban areas, which have many drivers parking on the street, snow plow routes present a large challenge. A driver who parks his car on a plow route will have his car towed, and this is often a charge of several hundred dollars. Making sure your car is in an appropriate place during the winter months is important to both your car and your wallet. Find out what the city local parking rules are for snow emergencies. In some cities, after a two inch snow fall, all cars must be parked off street. In other cities, when a snow emergency is declared, some streets are plowed at night, while others are plowed in the day. Cars must be moved by a certain time in the morning and again in the evening. Consider these important notes when looking for the local parking lots and rules.
