12.56.450: TIME LIMITED PARKING ON CERTAIN STREETS:linklink


A. Purpose Of Section: The city council finds that restricted time parking regulations are designed to require movement of vehicles from designated street parking locations to enable as many members of the public as possible to have access to prime street parking locations. Some members of the public attempt to avoid purposes of restricted time parking by moving their vehicles only enough to cover any markings placed by parking enforcement personnel or by moving their vehicles only to return within a few minutes to the same or approximately the same parking spot.

It is necessary to provide fair and equal access to limited public resources and assets such as prime parking locations.


B. Obedience To Traffic Signs And Markings: When signs or traffic markings are erected or placed by the direction of the city transportation engineer, no person shall park a vehicle or permit such vehicle to remain parked for longer than the time specified, between the hours shown upon any street, parts of a street, or roadway, except Sundays and holidays, as enumerated in subsection 12.56.200B of this chapter, or its successor.


C. Unlawful: It is unlawful for any person to:

1. Park a vehicle on the same time restricted parking block face for longer than the posted time limitation, or having left a parking spot located on a time restricted parking block face, repark on the same parking block face within the same length of time as the posted time limitation plus thirty (30) minutes immediately following the vacation of the place of initial parking; or

2. Remove a temporary mark placed by an enforcement officer except that which may naturally occur as a result of driving the vehicle.


D. Definitions:

BLOCK FACE: The side of the street where the vehicle was parked between two (2) intersecting streets. An alley shall not be considered a street.

STREET AND ALLEY: Have the meanings set forth in sections 12.04.490 and 12.04.030 of this title, respectively, or their successor provisions.


E. Civil Penalty; Continuing Violation: Violation of this section shall constitute a civil violation. It shall be a separate offense for each violation of the posted time limitations.


F. Prior Right To Parking Space: Every driver about to enter a parking space being vacated shall stop his or her vehicle and wait for the vehicle in the actual process of vacating the parking space, and having so waited shall have prior right to the parking space over all other drivers.


G. Interference Prohibited: No driver shall stop his or her vehicle ahead of a parking space being vacated and attempt to interfere with a driver who has waited properly to the rear of a parking space being vacated. (Ord. 9-17, 2017)

1. At the time of the receipt of the notice, possession of the subject vehicle had been acquired in violation of the criminal laws of the State;

2. If the notice of unauthorized use alleges a violation of any ordinance pertaining to a parking meter, such meter was mechanically malfunctioning to the extent that its reliability is questionable;

3. Compliance with the subject ordinances would have presented an imminent and irreparable injury to persons or property;

4. Parking notices for overtime parking at a meter or in a time restricted zone received by a City employee or guest while on official Salt Lake City business will be dismissed upon written request from the applicable Department Director or designee on official letterhead or by electronic mail.

F. If the Hearing Officer finds that an unauthorized use occurred but one or more of the defenses set forth in this section is applicable, the Hearing Officer may reduce the penalty associated therewith, but in no event shall such penalty be reduced below the sum of ten dollars ($10.00). Such defenses are:

1. At the time of receipt of the notice, possession of the subject vehicle had been acquired by another party pursuant to a written lease agreement or similar written agreement;

2. The subject vehicle was mechanically incapable of being moved from such location; provided, however, such defense shall not apply to any vehicle which remains at such location in excess of six (6) hours;

3. Any markings, signs or other indicia of parking use regulation were not clearly visible or comprehensible;

4. At the time of the notice of violation a responsible person receiving such notice of violation had, but failed to properly display, a special disability group license plate or placard that was valid and relevant to the notice of violation.

G. If the Hearing Officer finds that an unauthorized use occurred and no applicable defense exists, the Hearing Officer may, in the interest of justice and on behalf of the City, enter into an agreement for the timely or periodic payment of the applicable penalty.


H. If the penalty imposed pursuant to this chapter remains unsatisfied after forty (40) days from the receipt of notice, or ten (10) days from such date as may have been agreed to by the Hearing Officer, the City may use such lawful means as are available to collect such penalty, including costs and attorney fees.

12.56.590: PARKING EXEMPTION FOR OFFICIAL VEHICLES:linklink


A. Definitions: For purposes of this section, unless otherwise apparent from the context, certain words and phrases used in this section are defined as follows:

EXEMPT VEHICLE: A marked official vehicle or a nonmarked official vehicle used by the following persons:

1. City Department Directors.

2. City Council Members.

3. Operators of City fleet vehicles.

4. Designated City employees as determined by the Mayor or the Mayor's designee.

5. Designated employees or representatives of other governmental entities as determined by the Mayor or the Mayor's designee.

6. Emergency services personnel and employees of enforcement agencies.

7. Employees or representatives of quasi-governmental entities as determined by the Mayor or the Mayor's designee.

A personal vehicle may be considered an exempt vehicle if it is used by a person described above for official governmental or quasi-governmental purposes.

MARKED OFFICIAL VEHICLE: A vehicle owned or leased by a governmental or quasi-governmental entity that a representative of the entity uses in the course of the representative's official duties and that displays obvious official identification such as door symbols or light bars. A governmental or exempt license plate alone does not satisfy the obvious official identification requirement.

NONMARKED OFFICIAL VEHICLE: A vehicle, owned or leased by a governmental or quasi-governmental entity, without obvious official identification such as door symbols or light bars that a representative of the entity uses in the course of the representative's official duties, or a nonmarked vehicle for which the City previously issued an official vehicle sticker or placard.


B. Registration:

1. In order for a nonmarked official vehicle to become an exempt vehicle, it must be registered with the City's Compliance Director. The requesting agency's designated primary contact can initiate the registration process by contacting the Compliance Director's Office and following the guidelines for the vehicle registration process. Registration is not required for a marked official vehicle. A City department director may allow an individual City employee to register his or her personal vehicle as an exempt vehicle based on a documented need or requirement that will be included as part of the registration process.

2. As part of the online registration, the entity shall provide the following information:

a. Entity's name.

b. Name of entity's primary contact.

c. Telephone number of entity's primary contact.

d. E-mail address of entity's primary contact.

e. Vehicle make.

f. Vehicle model.

g. Vehicle color.

h. Vehicle license plate number.

i. Vehicle identification number.

j. Vehicle primary driver.

k. Reason why the vehicle should be classified as an exempt vehicle.

l. Days of the week when exempt status is required.

m. Location(s) in Salt Lake City where exempt status is needed.

3. As a part of the registration process, the City's Compliance Program Director shall review all requests and approve or deny exempt vehicle status. Upon approval or disapproval, the City shall notify the entity's primary contact of the approval or disapproval. Upon approval, the City shall include information about the registered exempt vehicle in the exempt vehicle database maintained in the City's Parking Enforcement Office. The exempt vehicle database shall contain the information necessary to enable parking enforcement personnel to identify an exempt vehicle when they enter the vehicle's license plate number in their enforcement handheld device and to confirm exempt vehicle status and any status limitations.

4. The City's Compliance Program Director or the Director's designee shall be responsible for reviewing and approving any specific limitations for exempt vehicles, which limitations may vary for each entity and each vehicle.

5. Exempt vehicles are subject to the generally applicable rules regarding restricted parking locations (such as handicap, no parking, bus lanes, and residential parking permit areas) and shall comply with nonparking related ordinances such as vehicle registration requirements. Exempt vehicles will not receive citations for violations of the following sections of this chapter: 12.56.150, "Parking Meters; Installation And Enforcement"; 12.56.180, "Parking Meters; Restricted Spaces"; 12.56.190, "Parking Meters; Overtime Parking Prohibited"; 12.56.300, "Residential Parking Lots Owned By The City"; 12.56.450, "Time Limited Parking On Certain Streets"; and 12.56.520, "Using Streets For Storage Prohibited". The City's parking enforcement personnel will also attempt to identify instances in which official vehicles are parked in violation of City ordinances due to unavoidable or emergency circumstances related to official duties. If the City's parking enforcement personnel are unable to identify the justification and rationale for an exempt vehicle being parked in a restricted parking location, then a citation shall be issued and the participating agency may establish justification for such parking violations before a Hearing Officer as part of a review process. Registered City exempt vehicles and City exempt vehicles used for emergency services are exempt from all parking ordinances.


C. Maintenance: A registered exempt vehicle shall remain exempt only if it undergoes an annual review and recertification process. The process shall be completed by the entity's primary contact using the same method that was used for the initial registration and shall be completed when the entity receives notification of completion from the City's Parking Enforcement Office. Parking enforcement's notification shall be sent by e-mail to the entity's primary contact. Approximately eleven (11) calendar months after the initial registration or recertification of an exempt vehicle, parking enforcement shall notify, by e-mail, the entity's primary contact of the need to recertify the vehicle. Vehicles that are not recertified by the thirteenth month after initial registration or recertification shall be automatically removed from the exempt vehicle database. An entity may submit to the City's Compliance Director requests for changes to exempt vehicle status, new requests, and changes to primary contact information, and the Compliance Director may make those changes. (Ord. 9-17, 2017)
