Having a city parking permit for your vehicle is important. The day time is not so paramount, but the night time is. Why?
The issue is more for legality purposes, more then anything else. Who must get one?
1) Any vehicle that is being used for commercial reasons. The vehicle also needs to be at least 21 inches in length. Let’s say a guy is driving a car for someone. He parks it outside while the passenger goes into a nearby building. No matter how much time he spends in that building, the driver must have a city parking permit. Certain areas have patrol cars driving around. If they see a person without the permit, even if it’s just for five minutes, the driver can get a citation.
2) Any limousine that is driving at night must have one. There are many celebrities that are driven to and from different places at night. Say an artist gets done with a concert at 11:30 pm. The driver needs to have the permit. It doesn’t matter who is in the backseat. Madonna or Brittany Spears could be in the car, and the driver still needs to have a night parking permit. It doesn’t matter if the driver is taking Madonna or Brittany to a hotel five minutes away from the venue, the limo still must have the permit displayed. It’s not an option. The law doesn’t make exceptions, not even for these two music legends.
WHO IS EXEMPT FROM THIS
There is only one particular case that has the exemption. It has to do with disabled drivers. Any vehicle carrying that display won’t be held for questioning. However, those vehicles must have their own “disabled permits” on display. Just because the person is disable doesn’t mean they are exempt entirely. They just come with a different permit.
WHAT IS THE COST
The cost is actually pretty small. For every 4-month paying period, it will cost about $20. If a person desires to pay in full, it’s about $55. This is actually pretty cheap.
THE 4 MONTH PERIOD
WHEN CAN A PERSON BEGIN BUYING
It’s pretty simple, really. A person can begin purchasing their permits on the 20th day of the previous month. Let’s say a man wants a permit to begin in May. He can begin buying on the 20th of April.
