North Dakota parking laws: understanding the basics

When you are driving in North Dakota, you need to know more than just the rules of the road. You also need to know the rules of parking to make sure that you do not park in a location that will end up getting you a citation and fine or having your car towed away to the impound yard.

Whenever you are parking your vehicle, the first thing you have to consider is whether or not your car or truck could become a hazard. You never want the vehicle to be dangerous or to block traffic. The following are some of the most important rules you will want to remember when parking in North Dakota.

Parking laws to remember

When you are parking your vehicle there are certain areas where you are never allowed to park unless ordered by a police officer. For example, you cannot park on sidewalks or within ten feet of crosswalks that are at an intersection. You cannot park within an intersection either. Double parking, where you park on the street side of an already parked or stopped vehicle, is also a traffic violation. It is also a hazard and it can slow down traffic.

Drivers are not allowed to park in front of a driveway either. Doing so would be an inconvenience for people who need to get into and out of the driveway. You cannot park within 10 feet of a fire hydrant in North Dakota either. Do not park in a tunnel, an underpass, or on an overpass or bridge. If there is a stop sign or a traffic control signal on the side of the road, you are not allowed to park within 15 feet of it.

You cannot park between a safety zone and the curb that is next to it. In addition, you cannot park within 15 feet of the points on the curb immediately opposite the ends of a safety zone. These are areas that are specifically for pedestrians.

If there is street excavation, or there is any other type of obstruction along the roadway, you are not allowed to park near it or on the opposite side of it. Doing so would limit the amount of space on the roadway, and it could slow the flow of traffic.

There may also be signs in other areas that signify that you are not allowed to park there. When you see a blue parking space or a blue curb, it is reserved for handicapped people. Unless you have the special plates or the placards that would indicate you are allowed to park there, don’t do it. Other people really need these spots, and you can be sure that a fine is in the future.

The rules and regulations can vary somewhat based on the town or city where you live. It is a good idea to check out the parking laws for your town and to keep an eye out for signs that could indicate the parking laws for certain areas.
