Parking time restrictions in Oslo 

Most public fee-based parking spaces have a maximum parking time. This information is stated on the traffic sign. Further we would like to emphasize that many traffic signs which regulates parking either is valid during a specific time of the day or they set a maximum parking time. In order to avoid a parking ticket and towing of the vehicle, the driver is obliged both to understand as well as follow the traffic signs. 

It is important to check the vehicle at least once a day for new traffic signs, for instance each spring when the streets in Oslo are cleaned.
