In an effort to help better inform our residents and guests about the Ordinance, we have prepared this short list of the most frequently asked questions we field.
   
With the new Ordinance in place, does this mean I can park on any street in Winter Springs?
   
Answer: No. Parking is still prohibited on arterial, collector, and other local streets deemed unsuitable for on-street parking. Local streets must have concrete curbs and a minimum of 22-feet of paved parkable space (including gutters) to be eligible for on-street parking. All streets without concrete curbs are not eligible for on-street parking. See the links for a complete list of the City streets where on-street parking is prohibited.
   
Now that I know which streets permit parking, does this mean I can park anywhere I want on that street?
  
Answer: No. City Ordinance 2014-06 and State statues still prohibit parking in certain areas. The ordinance language and statue 316.1945 both list those areas, however, here are some pertinent ones at a glance:

NO PARKING:

Within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.

Within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection.

Within an intersection or on a crosswalk.

Within 30 feet upon the approach to any flashing signal, stop sign, or traffic control signal.

Within 20 feet of the driveway entrance to any fire station.

In front of a public or private driveway

With the left wheels to the curb.

On an exclusive bicycle lane.

At any place where official traffic control devices prohibit standing or parking.

On the roadway side of any vehicle stopped or parked at the edge or curb of a street.

On or over a sidewalk.

Between a safety zone and the adjacent curb or within 30 feet of points on the curb immediately opposite the ends of a safety zone.

Alongside or opposite any street excavation or obstruction when stopping, standing, or parking would obstruct traffic.

Upon any bridge or other elevated structure upon a highway or within a highway tunnel.

On any railroad tracks or a bicycle path

At any place where official traffic control devices prohibit stopping.

Stand or park a vehicle, whether occupied or not, except momentarily to pick up or discharge a passenger or passengers.

No parking within 30' of or in any curve with a centerline street radius of 100' or less as determined by engineers.
