Here’s a heads-up about curbside parking in downtown Albany: If you cross the white lines painted on the street, you run the risk of getting a $25 citation, even if crossing the line is the only way to fit between cars already parked.
Compared to Salem or Corvallis, downtown Albany is a breeze when it comes to parking. The main difference: No meters. The penalties for overstaying the generous parking limits have remained unchanged for 20 years. But now an increase has been proposed.
