Fines and Holiday Parking Enforcement
All vehicles parked in metered parking spaces are required to pay the meter or pay station for the corresponding time the vehicle occupies the space.
This requirement also applies to City, County and other Government fleet vehicles, unless otherwise permitted. All CDOT-issued Right of Way Use permits must be displayed on the dashboard.
Parking and other fines range from $25 to $200 per ticket depending on the infraction. Vehicles will be towed if parked in hazardous locations or on streets restricted during peak rush-hour periods. Towed vehicles can be reclaimed upon payment of the $100 towing fee, the ticket that caused the tow and any outstanding and unpaid parking tickets.
