City of Savannah to begin parking blitz

Posted: Updated:

It's your property, it's your vehicle, but it still has to be parked legally.

The City of Savannah Property Maintenance is about to go on an illegal parking blitz around the city.

Any vehicles have to be parked on your driveway or within five feet of the driveway and parallel to it. Cars parked at an angle on the yard or too far away from a driveway would be in violation, and the city is not taking the violation lightly.

In the last two weeks alone, more than 1,000 citations have been issues. A few months ago, city inspectors conducted similar illegal yard parking blitzes and generated a total of 135 citations and courtesy notices.

The city launched the crackdown a few years after residents complained about people parking in their yards. Since then, the blitz has been an annual pre-Memorial Day effort.
