Be Aware of Enforcement Changes (Increase in Fines) to Metered and Residential Parking

In an effort to educate the public on these changes, Mayor Michael Pantelides has called for a “grace period” for first time parking offenders until October 1, 2016.

Effective Immediately:

During the grace period, first time offenders for both metered and residential parking will not receive a fine. Instead, they will receive a written warning that encourages the vehicle owner to explore alternative parking options at annapolisparking.com.

After the first warning has been issued:

  • (Metered Parking) A $40 fine will be issued for staying past the maximum time allowed at a metered space. Each additional violation will result in a $40 fine.
  • (Residential Parking) Repeat offenders that illegally park in a residential area will continue to receive a $40 ticket for each violation, rather than the escalating fines up to $140.00, even if they have incurred multiple violations. 

Effective October 1, 2016:

  • (Metered Parking) A $40 fine will be issued for staying past the maximum time allowed at a metered space. Each additional violation will result in a $40 fine.
  • (Residential Parking) Fines will be increased on an escalating schedule starting at $40 and costing as much as $140:
  1. Fine for initial offense: $40.00 (Two times the daily maximum garage fee)
  2. Second violation in a one year period: $70.00
  3. Third violation in a one year period: $105.00
  4. Fourth violation (or greater) in a one year period: $140.00

SP+ is using new License Plate Recognition technology, which is mounted on two enforcement vehicles and will allow for a more accurate reading of license plates on vehicles that have been parked illegally in a residential district.
