Title 13 . Public Safety
Chapter 2 . General Provisions
Section 377. Parking meter zones

13 AAC 02.377. Parking meter zones

(a) The Department of Transportation and Public Facilities or a municipality, in their respective jurisdictions, may establish and regulate parking meter zones on the streets or vehicular areas where it is determined on the basis of an engineering and traffic investigation that the installation of parking meters is necessary to regulate parking. Parking meters may be operated during the hours specified on any day except Sundays and legal holidays.

(b) Parking meters may be erected in parking meter zones immediately adjacent to each designated parking space. The meters must be capable of being operated, either automatically or mechanically, upon the deposit of a United States coin or other approved token. Each parking meter must be designed so that upon the expiration of the time period registered by the deposit of the coin or token, it will indicate that the parking meter period has expired, and prior to the expiration will indicate the interval of time which remains. Each parking meter must indicate the days and hours when the requirement to deposit coins applies, the value of the coins to be deposited, and the period of time for which parking is lawfully permitted in the parking meter zone in which the meter is located.

(c) No person may park a vehicle in a designated parking meter space during the restricted or regulated time of the parking meter so that the vehicle occupies more than one designated space or protrudes beyond the markings designating the space, except that a vehicle which is too large to be parked within a single designated parking meter zone may occupy two adjoining parking meter spaces when coins or tokens are deposited in the parking meter for each space occupied.

(d) No person may park a vehicle in a parking space adjacent to a parking meter during the restricted and regulated time applicable to the parking meter unless coins or tokens as provided in (b) of this section are deposited, or have been previously deposited. A person may not permit a vehicle in his control to be parked in a parking meter space during the restricted and regulated time applicable to the parking meter while the parking meter for the space indicates by signal that the parking time in the space has expired. A person may not park a vehicle in a parking meter space for a consecutive period of time longer than that limited period of time for which parking is permitted in the parking meter zone in which the meter is located, irrespective of the number of amounts of coins or tokens deposited in the meter.

(e) No person may deposit or attempt to deposit in a parking meter a slug, button or other device as a substitute for a coin or token required in (b) of this section.

(f) No person may deface, injure, tamper with, open, break, destroy or impair the usefulness of a parking meter.
