SUBJECT: No Parking Zone on Route 20 (Kadena Gate 2 Street)

Effective 31 March 2022, Okinawa Police Station ended the parking meter service and began enforcing a No-Parking zone for personally-owned vehicles on Kadena Gate 2 Street (Route 20 between Kadena Air Base Gate 2 and Highway 330).  Parking meters are covered to prevent the deposit of yen into the meter and "No-Parking" signs (red outer circle, blue inner circle, and red diagonal line) are posted at various locations along the roadway.  Violators will be issued a parking citation by local Japanese Police and fines may be assessed.  Parking citations are turned into the Provost Marshal's Office (PMO) and points may be assessed for off-base traffic violations by the Base Magistrate's Traffic Court Officer.
