Why does the city not write parking tickets to campers and oversized vehicles parked on the street when there is an ordinance against it?


"It is not illegal for a vehicle or trailer to be parked on a city street. A vehicle may be operated on a title for 30 days. The same applies to a trailer. As they may be operated when the owner is in possession of the title, they may be legally parked on a street. The ordinance and state statute that applies to these situations is commonly referred to as the abandoned vehicle statute. Under the statue/ordinance, an officer would be required to 'mark' the vehicle and wait a minimum of 30 days before having it removed from the street. While this is something a police office may handle, these calls are usually referred to our Community Service Officers, as they are dedicated to handling parking enforcement issues. Additionally, the Laramie City Council has recently passed a revised trailer parking ordinance that allows a resident to park one trailer in front of their own residence for any amount of time, without it being moved."

Ask the City Of Laramie is your chance to send the city that burning question that you have always wondered about such as: “Where can I get a city parking permit?” or “Why did my water usage rates go through the roof?”

Please note that the City of Laramie will answer as many questions as possible at their discretion.
