Parking Regulations City of Houston


Many of our Residents have requested info regarding the parking tickets they have been receiving of late.  First off, the tickets are issued by the City of Houston Traffic Department.  The following are general guidelines for our Residents.

1.  Vehicles must be at least 15 feet from a hydrant.

2.  Vehicles must park at least 20 feet from a crosswalk.

3.  Vehicles must be parked at least 30 feet from a stop sign.

4.  Vehicles must not be parked more than 18" from the curb and both passenger wheels should be parallel.  You may NOT park head in on a cul-de-sac.

5.  A car should not be parked more than 24 hours on the public road.

6.  Vehicles must be parked in the direction of traffic - you may NOT park facing the wrong direction.

Hopefully these guidelines will help our Residents avoid any future problems or tickets!
