Winter parking rules for people who live in Madison and have a car parked on the streets go into effect today. The city’s alternate-side and snow emergency parking rules will be in effect through March 15.
Vehicles parked on the street should be parked on the odd house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on odd-numbered dates, according to the City of Madison. Vehicles should be parked on the even house-numbered side of the street between the hours of 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on even-numbered dates. Violations of the alternate side parking ordinance are punishable by a fine of $20.
If you park on the street within Snow Emergency Zone, you only need to follow the alternate side parking rules when a Declared Snow Emergency is in effect.
If you park on the street outside of the Snow Emergency Zone, you should follow the alternate side parking rules each night from Nov. 15 until March 15 regardless of weather conditions.
