It must be spring! Evanston’s on-street parking regulations shift gears from concern about shoveling to sweeping next week.

Most streets have signs banning parking one night or day per week. But the city only sweeps most streets every other week and only tickets on days it actually cleans. So you can either follow the signs, follow the appropriate printed schedule available on the city’s web site or try to guess and pay the fines when you guess wrong.

There are plenty of special cases, so the best solution is to check the web site and nail down the rules for your street.
