CITIES OF RACINE, KENOSHA — Winter parking regulations are effective starting today (Dec. 1) until April 1. Parking regulations do not apply on Christmas Day (Dec. 25) and New Year’s Day (Jan 1).

Winter Parking Regulations:

Vehicles in the City of Racine or Kenosha must park on the even-numbered address side of the street between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. of an even-numbered calendar day, and on the odd-numbered side of the street between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. of an odd-numbered day.

In other words, on the evening of Dec. 1, cars parked on the even-numbered side of each road will be adhering to the regulation. Remember that the regulation is based upon the post-midnight date of the night in question.

If these regulations are violated, vehicles/people are subject to ticketing and a $20 fine in Racine, or a $30 fine in Kenosha.

There is no parking allowed on arterial and collector streets while the Snow Emergency is in effect; violators will be towed.
