Alternate side parking restrictions will begin at 1 a.m. Friday throughout Madison, Wis., which will require residents to park their cars on the odd numbered house side of the street starting Thursday evening.
These restrictions are in effect seven days a week from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. from Nov. 15 to March 15, regardless of the weather. Car owners must park on the odd number house side of the street on odd numbered days and even house sides on even days.
Violators may receive $20 fines, or $60 fines during a snow emergency.
“To avoid fines people should park their cars on the proper side of the street,” Streets Division spokesperson George Dreckmann said. “Residents should also remove seldom used vehicles, boats and other trailers from the streets now to avoid fines.”
The area that extends from Park and Proudfit Streets to Thornton Avenue and the Yahara River, and from Lake Mendota to Lake Monona is exempt from the restrictions.
