Parking enforcement resuming along city curbs

ST. LOUIS — Drivers will again have to pay attention to where they leave their cars along the city’s streets, or face paying a penalty for illegal parking.

The city’s parking division says that parking enforcement at curbs will resume on Monday, June 1.

City meters will still be free for one more week, until June 8.

Parking enforcement was halted on March 16 as Treasurer Tishaura Jones, who is in charge of the parking division, expressed concern about the safety of her staff and the public during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Her office suspended most ticketing, collections and escalation of late penalties.

The treasurer’s office reminds drivers to read posted signs carefully, warning that tickets will be issued for illegal parking, including but not limited to the following:

  • Street sweeping days
  • No-parking zones
  • Fire hydrants
  • Vacant lots
  • Improper diagonal directions

Jones said the parking division would provide more information about adjustments to any late penalties as the economy begins to re-open.

“As Treasurer, I have been laser focused on helping St. Louisans safely survive these challenging economic times,” Jones said in a statement. “We are working on a safe, phased return.”
