Columbus Parking Laws
Parking Code was recently updated to improve citizen access and safety, and new
rules are now in effect across the City.
There are four specific changes that the Department of Public Service
would like to bring to the attention of our residents and guests.

Parking Spaces (Code Section 2105.16)

marking, or a parking meter. Failing to
park within the boundaries of a parking space is a violation and you will be
subjected to a $47 ticket.
