Parking Enforcement

Enforcing parking regulations and insuring parking compliance is a major concern of the Radford City Police Department. Legal parking areas are limited making it a priority to see that time that regulations set forth by City Code are obeyed. Patrol personnel are responsible for enforcing the laws pertaining to illegally parked vehicles, over time parking, blocking of alleys and driveways, and parking on sidewalks.

Handicapped Parking
Strict enforcement is also given in the areas of handicapped parking spaces. A handicapped tag or current placard must be displayed to be in compliance with these laws.

Parking permits are issued at no charge to residents who live on streets designated which have time controlled parking. Persons requesting a parking permit must complete the parking permit application (PDF); provide a copy of a current lease, vehicle registration and a photo ID in person at the Radford City Police Department Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
