County steps up parking enforcement after Maryland state of emergency is lifted
SILVER SPRING, Md. (WDVM) – If you have unpaid parking tickets in Montgomery County, you risk having a trunk towed or your car towed.
After nearly a year and a half, parking control will be back in effect from November. Drivers with more than 3 unpaid parking tickets could start or tow their vehicles. The parking enforcement was suspended in March of last year to deal with the financial burden many felt due to the closure.
The county also warns cars with boots for more than 3 days, debt of $ 1,500 or more, violation of area restrictions during rush hour or in unsafe or abandoned condition may be towed immediately. The decision to reinstate parking enforcement was made following the lifting of Maryland’s state of emergency.
Drivers with outstanding parking tickets are encouraged to pay them online or by calling 240-453-0113. Drivers can also pay fines in cash at parking lots, located at 809 Ellsworth Ave. In Spring (inside Town Square Garage) or 4720 Cheltenham Drive in Bethesda (inside Cheltenham Garage). Both stores are open from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on statutory holidays.
