Uruguay’s main cities are often very busy, especially in summer, and you’ll find that parking isn’t easy to come by.
There is plenty of paid parking in the towns and villages but in the cities, especially near the centres you’ll find that parking is at a premium. Use the parking garages or lots to save lots of time travelling around. Many are conveniently located and they are patrolled and well lit. Roadside parking can often be in bays which are controlled by meters or parking ticket machines.
Enforcement of parking is done by the police but it’s not often that people are fined for bad parking. If you cause an obstruction however, you may well get towed!
There are no concessions for disabled drivers when it comes to parking but you’ll often get a sympathetic attendant at parking lots and garages who will do what they can to help.
