Proposed Regulation Changes Impacting Parking of Fleet Vehicles in Fairfax County Set for Public Hearing on Sept. 25, 2018

At a public hearing set for Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018, at 4 pm, at the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors will consider changes to the Fairfax County Code that would affect the ability of organizations to park company-owned vehicles on public roadways in Fairfax County. These proposed changes to Section 82-1-19 of Fairfax County Code would prohibit the parking of “fleet vehicles” on public Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) maintained roadways while the vehicles are not in use.

For Businesses - 3 Key Things to Know

  1. Fleet vehicles, for this purpose, are defined as “…any vehicles and/or trailers, greater than one, that are controlled, owned or leased by a single company and are used in the normal business operations of that company.” This definition includes fleets of revolving inventory, and vehicles that are available for rent or lease to individuals or businesses.
  2. The restriction would not apply to vehicles registered to individual employees that are used in the normal course of business. The restrictions would also not apply to any commercial vehicles when picking up or discharging passengers; when making a pickup or delivery of merchandise; or when temporarily parked while employees perform work or deliver service at a location, if parking of the fleet vehicle does not obstruct traffic.
  3. It’s not always easy to determine if a street is a public street that is maintained by VDOT, or a private street owned by a business or another private entity. To check your street - or any street - in Fairfax County, please visit the Fairfax County Road Maintenance Map.
