Montgomery County, Maryland Parking Enforcement
During the summer months, some of the residential streets, including streets in Kentlands, have a parking shortage near community swimming pools and recreational facilities. We just received a phone call from a home owners association asking about parking regulations. Residents and visitors need to be alert to avoid parking fines or towing.
The Police Department looks for the citizens of our communities to observe and comply with all parking laws of Montgomery County. Most fines are $50.00 for each offense and the vehicle could also be subject to tow and storage fees. This is a list of the most applicable parking laws as provided by the Police Department.
