The grace period to get your parking permit is over. If you do not have a permit you can only park in the Triangle for 2 hours during the week between the hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
However according to the TU, having a permit does not guarantee a spot. The city has already sold around 3,300 permits for the 2,750 available spaces, and the city will continue to keep issuing permits at $25 each.
I guess that confirms that there are more people living in the parking zones then there are spots for cars, and that maybe state workers aren’t completely to blame for parking issues.
