Folks who park their vehicles on the street in the City of Racine and the Village of Sturtevant should mark Dec. 1 on their calendars for the beginning of alternate side parking restrictions.

From 2 to 6 a.m., cars must be parked on even days on the even address side of the street and on oddly numbered days, vehicles can only be parked on the odd address side of the street.

City of Racine residents who violate the parking restriction face tickets of $20 each.

Residents are granted a reprieve for certain holidays. In Racine, the restriction is lifted for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. In Sturtevant, restrictions are not in effect Dec. 23 – Dec. 27; New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day; and Jan. 2 and Jan. 3.

Parking restrictions in Racine extend until April 1 but end March 1 in Sturtevant.
