Play associated audio

New parking rules go into effect today in Fairfax County, where commercial vehicles will no longer be able to park on neighborhood streets.

The ordinance was unanimously approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in December, and places new restrictions on height, width and weight of vehicles that can be parked on residential streets.

The Fairfax County Police Department will begin responding to complaints today, informing people they'll need to find another place to park their commercial vehicles.
