Many parking spots in Seattle are time-limited, e.g. 2 hours:


How long must one wait before re-parking in the such time-limited parking spots in Seattle (Washington state, United States)?


According to 11.72.240 of the Seattle Municipal Code, entitled Moving vehicle to avoid time limit:

No person shall move and repark a vehicle on either side of a street within the same block in order to avoid a parking time limit regulation specified for either side of the street in that particular block.

  • Thanks! How long must one wait before re-parking in the same time-limited parking spot in Seattle? Sep 27 '21 at 21:29

    To me it reads like 8am the next day, but I'll have a dig around the Code and report back if I find anything relevant

    @RockApe actually you could re-park at 6pm when the restriction ends.

  • @DaleM ah, good spot. I'm kicking myself for missing that :) But would it still be a "time-limited" spot once the restrictions end (rhetorical)? Sounds a bit metaphysical to me so is probably off-topic and more suited to PhilosophySE (rhetorical - again)

  • @RockApe couldn’t say about Seattle but where I’m from the time limit applies to all the restrictions on the sign. Unless there’s another sign.
