City of Lincoln
Layperson's Terms

It is against the law to park your car anywhere that the city has the right of way. This includes most alleys, parking so you are hanging over sidewalks (interfering with pedestrians) or even in the space between the curb and the sidewalk in almost all areas of Lincoln. As a side note, it's also illegal to park within five (5) feet of the curb cut for any driveway. For any questions or clarifications on exceptions, please check with Lincoln Police Department at 441-7204.
