Transportation - Preferred Parking
Providing preferred parking for hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles (sometimes called "green parking") is catching on quickly across the country. The idea is simple: drivers who arrive at work (or at train stations, airports, shopping malls, resorts or other public parking areas) driving hybrid or alternative fuel vehicles get the best parking spots available, after handicapped areas.

Simple signage and parking lines painted green designate the special reserved parking areas for energy-efficient cars, providing a de facto showroom of hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles. Some municipalities have even waived parking fees entirely for hybrid vehicles.
