Drivers in Vermont need to pay careful attention to where they park their vehicles. It is just as important to know the regulations and laws about parking as it is to know all of the laws that apply when you are actually driving. Those who do not pay attention to the parking laws are at risk of getting fines and even having their car towed. Let’s look at some of the most important parking laws to remember in Vermont. Also, keep in mind that in some towns and cities, the actual parking laws can vary somewhat. Learn the laws for where you live.

Parking regulations to remember

When you are parking, your vehicle needs to be facing the same direction as the flow of traffic. In addition, you need to make sure that your wheels are no more than 12 inches from the curb. If you have to park on the highway in a rural area, you need to make sure all of your wheels are off of the travel portion of the road, and that drivers in both directions can see your vehicle for 150 feet in either direction.

There are a number of places where you are not allowed to park. You cannot park beside a vehicle that is already stopped or parked on the street. This is called double parking, and it is going to slow down traffic, not to mention it is a hazard. Drivers are not allowed to park in intersections, crosswalks, or on sidewalks.

If there is any type of roadwork going on, you cannot park near it or on the opposite side of the street from it, as it could cause traffic to slow down. You cannot park in tunnels, bridges, or on railroad tracks. In fact, you have to be at least 50 feet away from the nearest rail of a railroad crossing when parking.

It is also unlawful to park in front of a driveway. If you parked there, it could prevent people from going into and out of the driveway, which would be a huge inconvenience. Many times, property owners will have vehicles towed away when they block driveways.

When parking, you need to be at least six feet away from any fire hydrant and at least 20 feet away from a crosswalk at an intersection. You have to park at least 30 feet away from traffic lights, stop signs, or flashing signals. If you are parking on the same side of the street as a fire station entrance, you need to stay at least 20 feet from the entrance. If you are parking on the other side of the street, you will need to be at least 75 feet away from the entrance. Do not park in bike lanes, and never park in a handicapped space unless you have the required plates and placards.

When you are getting ready to park, you should always look for any signs in the area. Official signage can let you know whether you are allowed to park in the location or not, so you should follow these signs.

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.
