Parking Restrictions

Control of on-street parking is accomplished through signing, markings, and enforcement. Signing and marking regulations are discussed in the MUTCD. Standard parking restrictions are set forth in the Uniform Vehicle Code.

Some of the more common parking restrictions include:

  • In front of a public or private driveway
  • Within an intersection
  • On a sidewalk or crosswalk
  • Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant
  • Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection
  • Within 30 feet of a crosswalk on approach to a signalized intersection
  • Approaches to a fire station
  • Adjacent to roadway excavation
  • Within 50 feet of the nearest rail of a railroad crossing
  • On any bridge or other elevated structure on a highway
