Parking in Downtown Tyler is a challenge. Meters around the square, a garage that's confusing, and lots that are privately owned. Where's a person to park?

So we thought we could help by providing The 10 Commandments of Parking in Downtown Tyler. Here we go.

1. Thou shalt not park in a metered space for more than two hours, Monday through Friday 8 am - 5 pm.

2. Thou shalt park for free in a metered space if thou art a veteran or disabled with appropriate license plates or placards visibly displayed.

3. Thou shalt receive a boot on your vehicle if you fail to pay your parking ticket.

5. Thou shalt park in the parking garage for $5 all day long.

6. Thou shalt park for free in the parking garage after 7 pm on weekdays.
