Parking Violation

The act of illegally holding or financing stock on behalf of another party with the intent to conceal that party's ownership. Parking violations occur when an investor would otherwise own more that 5% of shares outstanding, which would require him/her to register certain information with the SEC. Parking violations usually occur when a corporate raider wishes to conceal his/her intent to acquire a company and enlists another's help in doing so by asking him/her to hold or finance a certain amount of stock.
