February 22, 2024


  • Westport will begin enforcing a three-hour parking limit downtown using license plate tracking software.
  • The initiative aims to increase parking turnover in the area.

Westport is set to implement a new parking enforcement strategy in downtown area this spring. The town will be using TickeTrack, a license plate tracking software program, to enforce a three-hour parking limit. This initiative comes as a response to the issue of vehicles being parked for extended periods of time in downtown, leading to limited parking turnover. Vehicles exceeding the three-hour limit will be ticketed under this new enforcement system.

The decision was made by the Board of Selectwomen in an effort to address the parking congestion issue in the area. The use of technology to track parking duration is expected to streamline enforcement and provide a more efficient parking system for visitors and residents in downtown Westport.
