Bangor’s Winter Parking Regulations Start Nov. 1
The city of Bangor’s winter parking regulations will begin on Friday, Nov. 1, 2013 and remain in effect until March 31, 2014.
Here’s summary of the rules provided by the Bangor Police Department. Questions may be directed to the Parking Enforcement Division at 947-7397.
1) Night Parking – Vehicles cannot park on a public street or parking area between midnight and 6:00 AM. Cars can be ticketed and towed for this violation.
2) Alternate Side Parking (Odd-Even) – Parking is allowed on only one side of the street. On the odd numbered days of the month, cars must park on the side of the street with odd numbered addresses. On the even days of the month, cars must park on the side of the street with even numbered addresses. (i.e. On Nov 1st cars would park on the same side of the street as houses with odd numbered addresses like 1, 3, 5, etc.). Cars can be ticketed for this violation. Please note this requirement does not apply to streets where one side of the street is already posted to prohibit parking or where parking is restricted by time limits.
3) Blocking Snow Removal – Vehicles cannot be parked on a public street or parking area so as to interfere with or hinder plowing or snow removal operations. Cars can be ticketed and towed for this violation at any time of day.
Ticket waiver fees for these violations range from $10-$20 and tow fees are a minimum of $65 per vehicle.
As has been our agency’s practice in the past, we will be issuing warnings for these violations for the next few weeks, but officers will begin issuing tickets for these violations after that.
