Road signs you will see when parking
We have created a list of some of the most common road signs that we use when we check that cars have been parked correctly and properly.
If you want to read more about the different road signs and what they mean, you can visit the website of the Swedish Transport Agency (Transportstyrelsen).
Unless otherwise stated, parking is permitted for 24 hours. These signs are often also supplemented by additional plates indicating how long and between what times you can park. The basic rule of 24 consecutive hours of parking only applies on weekdays, except on days before Sundays and public holidays. If this sign is used in a specially designated parking facility, the instruction applies to the entire parking facility.
The sign indicates that only vehicles with the possibility of external charging of electricity for the vehicle's propulsion may park.
When Aimo Park controls an area, that area must have signs indicating our company name Aimo Park or another name of the company/association that has assigned its area to us for control, and also a telephone number.
The signs must be located at the entrance to the area or within the area of the parking facility we are controlling.
This sign indicates the start of an area where the prohibitions on the sign apply. When this sign is at the entrance to an area, parking is prohibited for the entire area, unless there are other signs in the area.
End of prohibited area
This sign indicates that parking vehicles is prohibited. The instruction applies to the side of the road where the sign is located.

Parking is only allowed for visitors to the area.
Is the vehicle's owner registered on the address where the parking facility is located, the vehicle is not entitled to park in the visitor parking bays. This sign may also be used for customer parking. If the driver is not a customer or visitor to the establishment at the time, parking is not permitted.
This plate states when the instruction on the sign applies.
Black or white numbers without brackets apply to weekdays except for weekdays before Sundays and public holidays. Black or white numbers inside brackets refer to weekdays before Sundays and public holidays. Red numbers refer to Sundays and public holidays.
If the time stated extends beyond midnight, the time period after midnight applies to the following day. If a specific date or day of the week is indicated, the regulation applies on that day, regardless of whether the day is a weekday, Sunday or public holiday.
This signage provides information about the boundaries of where the signage applies in a specially designated parking area. The plates may be used independently to indicate the boundaries of parking bays in an area, provided that the entrance to the area indicates that parking is permitted.
Bi-directional arrows, shown horizontally or vertically, show that the instruction applies to both sides of the sign. The plates may be used independently to indicate the boundaries of parking bays in an area, provided that the entrance to the area indicates that parking is permitted.
A right or left pointing arrow shows that the instruction is valid in the direction shown by the arrow.
