General Unsigned Restrictions

Improper parking on public streets can lead to a citation. Fargo City ordinances prohibit stopping, standing, or parking a vehicle in the following places:

Pedestrian Way - vehicles are not allowed to park on or across a sidewalk or crosswalk. Vehicles are not allowed to park within 10 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection.

Fire Hydrant - vehicles may not park within 10 feet of a fire hydrant.

Too close to a Stop Sign or Traffic Signal - vehicles may not park within 15 feet of a stop sign or traffic light.

Railroad Crossing - vehicles may not park within 15 feet of the nearest rail of a railroad crossing.

Blocked Driveway - vehicles are not allowed to park in front of a public or private driveway, including parking to encroach upon the radius of the driveway. This includes in front of or in any alley, although you may stop in an alley to load or unload freight or merchandise.

Commercial vehicles are allowed to double park for the purpose of loading or unloading freight, only as long as absolutely necessary, but not between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. (8-1005)

To report a parking problem on a public street or in an alley, call the Police Department at 701-235-4493.
