Overnight Parking
Brighton Code of Ordinances 86-29, Section 8.25 states that is unlawful to park a vehicle on any City street between the hours of 3:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. on any day of the week.

Special temporary permission to park overnight may be requested through the Brighton Police Department by calling 810-227-2700 during regular business hours or stopping into the police station.  Such permission may be approved based on a legitimate temporary and non-continuing need based on special circumstances such as overnight visitors or driveway repair.

Long-term permission to park overnight may be requested by obtaining an application from the Police Department.  Such long-term permission may be granted upon demonstration of an “inability to comply” with the ordinance due to hardship such as a lack of parking provided at the property location.  Inability to use a garage due to storage is not considered a hardship qualifying for permission to park on the street overnight.  Inconvenience of having to shuffle cars in a driveway is also not considered a basis for hardship qualifying for permission to park on the street overnight.  Approved long-term permission requires the payment of a permit fee that may be renewed annually based on showing of continued hardship.
