Parking Services enforces Town parking ordinances as well as general state statutes related to parking by issuing parking tickets to illegally parked vehicles. This type of enforcement is required in municipalities such as Chapel Hill to maintain legal parking, regulate traffic movement and ensure public safety.
There may be limits on the amount of time a vehicle may park to support the needs of businesses, or parking may be reserved for a special group, such as individuals with disabilities.
When vehicles are parked in violation of a posted regulation, a parking citation may be issued. Visit the Parking Violations page to learn more about common parking violations and also vist our tips on how to avoid parking citations page.
Parking Services provides enforcement coverage for meter zones, timed zones, loading zones, no parking/stopping zones, disabled parking spaces, residential permit parking zones, and fire hydrants. In addition, support service is also provided to enforce parking restrictions during special events, or scheduled street maintenance or cleaning.
