The vast majority of parking meters have a two-hour limit, except for the parking meters above the first floor of the parking garage. The two-hour limit meters are clearly marked. After the two-hour limit, you must move your vehicle to a non-adjoining space. Having additional time on the meter after two hours has no bearing on this violation. In other words, you can still be cited for the two-hour limit even though the meter has not yet expired. Each two-hour period over the limit will result in an additional citation, so it is important when parking in a metered space that you move your vehicle every two hours.
Pay your tickets promptly. By city ordinance, fines are substantially increased if a ticket is not paid within five straight days. Tickets may be paid as follows: At the Athens Police Department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week Online By calling (800) 984-5973 By placing the ticket and exact fine amount in the provided courtesy envelope and depositing it in the yellow courtesy boxes located on various meters throughout the metered parking area. Do not place your tickets in a US Postal Service mail box. If you have questions about parking in Athens, call our Parking Enforcement Division at (740) 592-3308.
