Drivers in Nevada need to pay just as much attention to where they park their vehicle as they do when it comes to following the rules and laws of being on the open road. If you park in an area where it is illegal, you will have to pay fines and in some cases, you might return to the spot where you parked your car only to find that it has been towed away. One of the first things you need to learn is what the different colored curb markings mean.

Colored curb zones

The colored markings help to control parking. If the curb is painted white, it will generally mean that you are allowed to stop in the zone for a very short time. You can be there for as long as it takes to let people get into or out of the car, or to drop mail into a mailbox. If the curb is green, it means you can park there for a limited time. The amount of time you are allowed to park will generally be displayed on a sign above the curb, or it could be indicated on the curb in some cases.

A yellow painted curb means that it is a loading zone. The exact rules for the loading zone can vary from town to town in Nevada, so you will need to know the laws where you live or are visiting. Blue markings indicate that the space is designated for handicapped parking.

A red painted curb means that you are not allowed to stop, stand, or park in the area. It may be a fire zone, for example. Again, the exact rules can vary based on the town or city.

Other parking rules to remember

In addition to the colored curb zones in Nevada, there are a number of other regulations you will need to remember. Drivers are not allowed to park on sidewalks or within intersections. In addition, it is illegal to park in front of a public or private driveway, since it would block access.

You cannot park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant in areas where parallel parking is allowed. If angled parking is allowed, you cannot be within 20 feet of the fire hydrant. You can’t park on a crosswalk or within 20 feet of it. You must be at least 30 feet away from traffic control signals at the side of a highway. You need to be at least 50 feet away from the nearest rail of a railroad.

When parking near a fire station, you need to be at least 20 feet away from the entrance when parking on the same side of the road. If you are on the opposite side, you need to be at least 75 feet away. You can’t park near or opposite a construction zone on the highway, on a bridge, in a tunnel, or anywhere that signs prohibit parking. Finally, you cannot park in a bike lane, unless your vehicle is disabled.

I had an appointment to have brakes/rotors done. Augustine is a very nice guy. Personable and polite! He came 30 minutes early for the appointment, and asked me if he could come early before he came. Top quality, will use him again for rear brakes/rotors in a few weeks.
