Night parking on the street is regulated by West Hartford ordinance. Parking is not permitted on any street at any time between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Exceptions may be granted on a case-by-case basis through the Police Department for such things as driveway construction, roadway construction which blocks driveway access, or for a short-term out-of-state visitor. Residents may request an "omit tag" online or from the Police Department at 860-523-5203 for up to three days. The Police Department may also issue a town-wide "blanket omit" during a holiday.
If you have received a ticket, go to Parking Enforcement to learn more about your options. To protest a ticket, please complete the objection online or complete and mail this form.
