MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - This is the first weekend that new parking rules are in full effect along parts of North Ocean Boulevard.

The city changed the parking rules from 31st to 82nd Avenues north to lessen the amount of people parking on the residential streets and to decrease over-crowded parking on dangerous roads.

The changes are also intended to cut back on trash in residential yards and other nuisance behavior.

A lot of people said they understand the city's decision to implement paid parking but they wish the price to enjoy the beach was a little cheaper.

However, others thought otherwise. People said they either couldn’t get the system to work or spent at least 15 minutes trying to make sure their park was covered.

"I think it’s a disservice for the folks that come down here. Something could’ve been said to us at our hotel, at least giving us the heads up that, 'Hey, there’s some changes if you’re going to the beach, expect this.' So we're pretty disappointed," said a concerned tourist.

Those who have a Myrtle Beach parking decal do not have to worry about the changes. But for those who don’t have a decal or are tourists, it will be $2 per hour or $10 per day.
