Usually, you get a parking ticket for violating the parking laws of the city. Each city has different parking violations, but the most common deal with parking in a fire lane, parking in a handicapped parking zone, or running out of time on the meter. As said, every city has different rules and laws that involve parking, but there are signs everywhere explaining where and when you can park. When you park somewhere unfamiliar, be sure to look for signs to say if it is legal to park there.
