Wisconsin Parking Laws: Understanding the Basics

Drivers in Wisconsin should make it a point to learn and understand the various parking laws they have to abide by. Failure to adhere to the law when parking could mean a citation and fine in your future. The authorities may also have to tow your vehicle and take it to the impound lot. It is very important to keep all of the following rules in mind when you are parking in Wisconsin.

Parking laws to remember

There are many places in Wisconsin where you are not allowed to park, and some areas have limited parking. Looking for signage can help to ensure you are not parked in the wrong place, but you will also want to know some of the specifics for when there are no signs. For example, if you see a yellow painted curb or space on the pavement, parking is generally going to be restricted.

Drivers are not allowed to park in an intersection, and you need to be at least 25 feet away from railroad crossings when parking. You need to be more than 10 feet away from fire hydrants, and you cannot be within 15 feet of a fire station driveway on the same side of the street or right across from the entrance. Drivers are not permitted to park within four feet of a driveway, alley, or private road. In addition, you cannot park your car in a manner that blocks the area of a lowered or removed curb.

When you park alongside a curb, you need to make sure that your wheels are within 12 inches closest to the curb. You can’t park within 15 feet of a crosswalk or intersection, and you cannot park in a construction zone, as your vehicle might block traffic.

It is also unlawful to park in front of a school, (K through eighth grade) between the hours of 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on school days. In addition, they may have other signage posted outside of the school that will let you know what the hours are for that particular location.

Never park on a bridge, in a tunnel, on an underpass, or on an overpass. Never park on the wrong side of the street either. In addition, double parking is not allowed, so never stop or park on the roadway side of a vehicle that has already parked. You must never park in a space that has been designated for handicapped people either. It is discourteous and it is against the law.

While these are the rules you will want to keep in mind, you need to be aware that some towns and cities in the state might actually have slightly different regulations. Always learn the regulations for where you live so you do not park in the wrong place by mistake. You should also make sure to look for official signage that can indicate where you can and cannot park. If you are careful with your parking, you will not have to worry about getting towed or getting fines.
