New law raises truck parking fines in Delaware

October 5, 20220

The state of Delaware passed a law that increases parking fines for commercial vehicles in residential areas.

House Bill 479 was signed into law on September 9, 2022 by Governor John Carney.

The law came into force from the moment of its signing.

The new law increases the fine for parking large commercial vehicles in residential areas from $28.75-230 to $100-500 for the first violation. After the first violation, the fine for parking trucks in residential areas increases from $115-$575 to $400-$2,000.

The new law also allows Delaware transportation officials to “prohibit or restrict the stopping, parking, or parking of any trailer or recreational trailer on a roadway or roadway section.”

But on the condition that officials provide law enforcement agencies and the Delaware Department of Safety and Homeland Security with a list of roads where stopping, standing or parking commercial vehicles is illegal.
