Regulations - 9. Control of Parking Lots


9.0 Signs are posted at the entrance of each parking area giving the designation, hours the area is controlled, and the zone color. Vehicles may only park in areas designated for parking. Remember, if the sign does not say you can, then you cannot. Most parking lots are restricted year-round.

During hours when an area is controlled, parking is restricted to vehicles with permits which authorize parking in that area or at paid meters. Reserved parking spaces are restricted according to the sign posted at each reserved parking space. No vehicle may park free of charge at any meter except as noted in 9.5 or when displaying a valid accessible placard/tag or a paid visitor permit. Except as noted in sections 9.3 and 9.5, meters are enforced the same hours as the restrictions of the lot in which the meter is located.
