Tips for Parking on Busy Chicago Streets

A Necessary Hassle

If you’re driving in Chicago, you’ll have to find a place to park your vehicle. While many residential arrangements come with some kind of parking, running errands or going out on the town can be a different story. Some know-how can go a long way!

Pay Attention to Meters

Metered parking is common in any big city. To avoid tickets and any other trouble, make sure you pay close attention to rates, time limits, and so on. Make sure you know what you’re paying for!

Most meters have been modernized, and you can use a credit or debit card to pay, then put the receipt on your windshield. Still, it’s not a bad idea to keep some change in your car in case you encounter an older meter.

Know The Laws

Most people learn these things intuitively if they grow up in Chicago, but it never hurts to brush up on local parking laws to make sure you don’t get towed or ticketed. There are rules governing how close large vehicles can park to crosswalks, street parking restrictions in the winter, marked no parking zones, and restrictions during street cleaning days.
