Parking regulations

Parking major towns and cities can be busy and it's recommended that you park in secure car parks where possible. Theft from parked cars is common and quiet side streets represent the highest risk. Parking on tram lines is obviously forbidden and will lead to your vehicle being towed away.

Parking with 15 metres of a bus stop and 5 meters of a junction is a violation of parking regulations in Lithuania and will result in a fine, or if considered a hazard, again result in your car being towed away.

Disabled parking in Lithuania is provided by designated disabled parking bays. Blue badge holders can use these bays which are often free, however you should check local signage / meters.
