Restricted Residential Parking Zones


    The City of Miami Beach, in an effort to provide our residents with adequate parking for personal vehicles, has established residential parking zones in several areas of the City. To park in these zones during restricted hours, vehicles must display a residential parking permit decal. Residential zones are tow-away zones for those vehicles without the proper decal and are strictly enforced. Each zone is clearly marked with street signs.

    Bona fide resident(s) that qualify for visitor's scratch tags are required to provide proof of residency, such as, a utility bill, bank or credit card statement, within thirty (30) days of issuance stating their name and Miami Beach address. Internet print outs are not accepted.  

    Please be cognizant that scratch tags are solely intended for use of the resident's guest(s). The visitor's scratch tags are for "one day" use only; therefore, the day of the week, month, and year must be fully scratched off on the scratch tag and properly displayed hanging from the rearview mirror, to avoid a citation(s) and towing of the vehicle.

    The scratch tags are required Monday through Friday, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., however, on weekends and holidays, scratch tags are required 24 hours and are honored until noon the next day. Guest(s) will be required to replace the scratch tag by noon, if they wish to continue parking in the residential zone.

    The zone on your permit must match the zone on the Residential Permit Parking sign in order for you to park there.

    The permit DOES NOT exempt you from any posted parking regulations, yellow safety zones, obstructing sidewalks , nor does it guarantee you a parking space. All posted and public safety regulations must be observed, including restrictions for parking meters.

    The permit is not transferable from vehicle to vehicle. The permit can ONLY be used on the vehicle it is issued to and MUST BE PERMANENTLY AFFIXED to your front windshield, lower corner, driver's side. Vehicles with permits taped or not properly affixed will be cited. If you change vehicles or your license plate, you must apply for a replacement permit and return the old permit. In the case of a stolen permit, you must provide us with a police report for the stolen vehicle.

    The fee for a replacement or stolen permit is $7.50. Replacement of the permit will require presentation of a government issued photo identification, a police report, if applicable, the old permit and verification in the Residential Parking Program Computer System that you were a valid decal holder.

    Scratch Tags CANNOT be replaced.

    Scratch Tags are for the accommodation of short term visitors ONLY and must be prominently displayed. Failure to display scratch tag may lead to enforcement action, up to and including impoundment. Kindly review the message on the front of your scratch tag. The parking department requests that the intention of the scratch tag program be honored, in order not to jeopardize the program.
