City spending more than $1M for parking sign changes

Houston’s downtown street grid has 108 different parking signs telling drivers when they can and cannot park, when a certain space is a loading or commercial zone, and time limits for on-street parking.

Part of the change includes dropping the variety of signs to 22 and using red covers for parking kiosks to denote when parking is not allowed.

The abundance of signs confuses drivers and often leads to parking citations, said Bob Eury, executive director of the downtown management district.

Eury, a veteran of downtown parking, said he has received numerous tickets and has even seen his car towed.

“We need a system where we can tell people you can use this without a high risk of misunderstanding,” Eury said.
