Overtime Parking on City Streets

Overtime Parking on City Streets

Overtime parking in residential neighborhoods is one of the most common parking complaints received by the Gahanna Police Department (GPD). In the City of Gahanna, there is a maximum of 48 consecutive hours permitted for a vehicle to remain parked on the street. Typically, this is enforced on a complaint generated basis as the officers generally do not know which vehicles in a neighborhood are being driven or not.
