Colorado parking laws: understanding the basics

Many drivers in Colorado are well aware of the regulations and laws when they are out driving on the roads. However, they may not be quite as familiar with the laws regarding parking. If you do not know where it is illegal to park, you could be facing some fines from the city or town where you live. In some cases, your vehicle might even be towed and impounded. It is important to have a basic understanding of these laws to avoid these issues.

Know the laws

In Colorado, there are a number of regulations and laws that prohibit parking unless it is an emergency. Understanding these laws will help to ensure that you do not park your vehicle in an area that could cause you to receive a ticket and an expensive fine that you would much rather avoid. If you have to park in a public area, it is always a good idea to make sure that you are as far off the road as possible. This will ensure that traffic can still flow smoothly, and that there is much less of a risk of an accident.

Unless a law enforcement officer tells you to pull over in one of the following areas, you should never park there. Drivers are forbidden to park in intersections or on sidewalks and crosswalks. It is illegal to park between a safety zone and a curb as well. If there is construction and excavation happening on the street, or if there is an obstruction in the roadway, you are not allowed to park opposite or next to it.

Never park in a highway tunnel, an overpass, or a bridge. In addition, you cannot park on railroad tracks. In fact, you cannot park within 50 feet of a railroad crossing. Drivers are not allowed to park within 20 feet of a fire station driveway either.

Colorado parking law also states that you cannot park within five feet of a public or private driveway. If you park too close, it could make it difficult or impossible for other drivers to get into or out of it. Do not park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant, or within 30 feet of a flashing beacon, yield sign, stop sign, or traffic signal.

There may be other areas that prohibit parking. They will generally be denoted with signs, or the curb may be painted red, which would indicate a fire lane. Always pay attention to the signs to make sure you do not park in the wrong place inadvertently.

What are the fines?

Each town and city in Colorado will likely have its own set of regulations and laws for parking, which you will have to follow. In addition, the fines can vary based on the city or town where you received the ticket. It is important to make sure that you pay for your fines as soon as possible, so that they do not increase.

By paying attention to the laws and the signs, you should not run into any trouble when it comes to parking in Colorado.

Honda Accord - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I specifically asked for Bernie to come back, since I was so pleased with the work he did on our other car. This time I got to meet Bernie personally. He is a kind family-man who exhibited the quiet confidence of someone you would expect with the 50 years of automotive experience that he has. I felt very comfortable giving him the key to my car. Two of my kids (ages two and four) came out to greet him, since they remembered him from his first visit. Bernie is great around kids and was very kind to my two-year old son who was trying to "help" Bernie do his job. Thanks again, Bernie!
Honda Odyssey - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
I was very pleased with Bernie's work, professionalism, and courteousness. Best brake job I have ever had, and I have had many done (and several done myself, but not on this vehicle). This was a maintenance appointment -- not a repair of something broken -- so I was surprised when the brakes felt so much better after Bernie did the work. You can really see the care he took with our vehicle when I examined everything after he was finished. Thanks, Bernie!

Breck was awesome! He called ahead of time and asked if he could arrive early. He was friendly and easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable with the service he was going to provide and explained things clearly to me. He smiled and made this experience a good one. I will absolutely be booking future appointments with Breck and I will recommend him and Your Mechanic services to others I know. Thank you!

BMW Z4 - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Phoenix, Arizona
Brian knows what he is doing and I am so happy yourmechanic.com suggested him for my Z4 car inspection prior to purchasing and even happier he was available to perform my 1st service on the vehicle I purchased. His knowledge on the brand gave him ability to to an in depth inspection and he communicated very well informing me what to prepare for in ownership of my BMW. When he came to perform maintenance on my vehicle he shared so many tips with me. I will absolutely be having Brian come back out when I need future servicing on my car.
