Parking Regulations... don't give them a reason to ticket you.

ODD/EVEN PARKING

The Town of Framingham enforces a year-round ODD/EVEN side parking restriction program. Even years, (2010) parking is allowed on the even side of streets from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. Odd years, (2011) parking is allowed on the odd side from Jan 1st to Dec 31st. Centrally located Signs displaying ODD or EVEN restrictions according to the year exist in 22 locations throughout town, yearly changes are broadcast through the media and with the town’s rapid telephone notification system,

This restriction is enforced on a block by block basis, an exception to this would be (example) if during an even year (2010), a street has several blocks of intersecting streets along its, length, and one block between intersecting streets had pre-existing town signs prohibiting parking year-round on the Even side, residents could legally park on the Odd side only for that effected block regardless of Odd or Even years.

Jim, if you get a ticket for parking on the wrong side of your street, and you pay that ticket, where does that money do? Who benefits from that, and where is the estimate of the amount that will be taken in for this ticketing recorded in the town budget?

Worried.. it goes into the general fund... and hopefully it won't be a lot. I've been ticketed in the past and will not make that mistake again.

Town wide, I can't imagine it's any more than a few thousand dollars.
