Parking regulations are subject to enforcement at all times.
(1) Parking permit areas. All parking permit areas are limited to authorized permit holders during specific hours. These hours are posted in each parking area at the entrance to parking areas or along roadways where parking is marked.
(2) Restricted spaces. These spaces are restricted for their designated purpose at all times unless signed otherwise:
(a) Disability zones;
(e) Reserved (bagged) parking meters; and
(f) Areas which are specially signed or physically set apart by barricades, traffic cones, tape, or other 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 will allow a maximum of thirty minutes to be purchased at one time). A motor vehicle which is parked at an expired 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.
