Time limits range from 30 minutes to four hours. All meters are labeled, and for your fun fact of the day: all yellow meters are 30-minute meters.
You may have a one-hour meter (can only pay for one hour at a time) in a three-hour zone, so you can legally “feed,” or refill, the meter for a total of three hours when you initially park.
Most meters take credit cards, however some “old-timey” change-only meters still exist so keep some quarters on hand.
Your front bumper should be aligned with the parking meter, with the edge of your vehicle as close to the curb as possible while keeping your wheels intact.
It’s a gamble and probably not worth risking a citation. If you see a non-functioning meter, please report the location and meter number to (904) 630-CITY (2489) or by submitting a CARE COMPLAINT.
No matter how crafty you may be, remember if you are not parked at a meter, you are illegally parked.
A disabled parking placard will allow you to park FREE at a meter for up to four hours.
Keep in mind that oversized vehicles should be aware of the height restrictions in parking garages. Curbside parking is best. When parking in a metered area, you must pay both meters if you take up another space.
