LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Both Lafayette and West Lafayette are being more lenient on issuing parking tickets.
In Lafayette, parking tickets will not be given in the two or three hour parking spaces.
The city will still enforce parking issues in handicap spaces and loading zones.
In West Lafayette the same is true.
Parking is free except in designated handicap or loading zone spaces.
Both cities have cut down on staff temporarily during COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor John Dennis said its in an effort to cut down on one-on-one interaction.
"Traffic enforcement is as important as it is for public safety, there is greater issue right now and it is that one-on-one contact that we are concerned about," said Dennis.
In Lafayette it has put up new 20-minute zone sports designated for curbside pickup of food.
The signs will be up for the entirety of the stay-at-home order.
As of now that will end Monday, April 20th.
