Wash. Admin. Code § 504-14-210 - Times of enforcement

Current through Register Vol. 22-07, April 1, 2022

Parking regulations are subject to enforcement at all times.

(1) Parking permit areas. All parking permit zones are limited to authorized permit holders during all hours of the day. These hours are posted in each parking area at the entrance.
(2) Restricted spaces. These spaces are restricted for their designated purpose at all times unless signed otherwise:
(a) Disability zones.
(b) Load/unload.
(c) Service.
(d) Reserved.
(e) Reserved (bagged) parking meters.
(f) Pedestrian mall.
(g) Areas which are specially signed or physically set apart by barricades, traffic cones, tape, or other traffic devices.
(3) Parking metered spaces. Parking meters are in effect during the times posted on each meter. During these times the meter must be paid the posted amount. Additional time cannot be purchased beyond the meter's posted maximum time limit (e.g., a thirty-minute meter allows a maximum of thirty minutes to be purchased at one time). A motor vehicle which is parked at an expired parking meter is considered in violation initially, and after each period equal to the maximum time posted for the meter. In such case a parking ticket may be issued for each violation. For example, a vehicle parked at a meter with a two-hour maximum time limit for six hours and five minutes of continuous unpaid parking at the same meter would be eligible for up to three parking tickets.
(4) Pay parking facilities. Some parking areas provide parking on an hourly basis. Hours of operation and a schedule of fees are posted at the facility entrance and at the point of payment. Parking tickets are issued to vehicles that are parked over the duration of time that was paid and for nonpayment. Parking areas with parking meters are not considered pay parking facilities.
