Today Mayor Mike McGinn, the Seattle Department of Transportation, and the Seattle Police Department announced an update on Seattle’s pre-paid parking program. In advance of St. Patrick’s Day, every pay station in Seattle now offers the option of overnight parking, providing a tag to mark your car, colloquially called a “liquor sticker.”
The option provides a safe alternative for those who may have had too many drinks to drive, without having to worry about their car being towed.
“When it comes to our road safety efforts, we are taking an ‘all-of-the-above’ approach,” said Mayor McGinn. “That’s why we are making it easier to park your car on our streets overnight to reduce the likelihood of impaired driving and that’s why we are stepping up our enforcement with targeted emphasis patrols.”
