RICHMOND, Va. -- The City of Richmond has eased parking enforcement in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Parking enforcement within city limits is now limited to only illegal parking," the city advised online. "Time violations will not be fined. Illegal parking is typically parking that obstructs the right of way or endangers public safety. Examples include: parking in front of fire hydrants, blocking accessibility ramps, and obstructing intersections, crosswalks, and bike lanes."
