Some general parking laws include restrictions on parking in front of a fire hydrant, driveway or alleyway, and refraining from parking in designated disabled parking spots without a disabled permit, explains Just Landed. Areas in which parking is restricted are designated by signs or paint on the curb.
Parking laws can vary significantly from state to state. As of 2015, street parking in suburban areas of the United States is often unrestricted, according to Just Landed. Some locations in the United States have metered parking, notes Anglo Info. In these areas, drivers must feed coins into a machine in order to buy units of parking time.
