Parking Prohibited on Snow-Covered Tri-Boro Roads
Police ask residents to park in driveways so plows can come through.
Police are warning residents not to park their vehicles on borough roadways as plow trucks and salters make their way through the tri-boro to clear roadways.
Kinnelon police sent Nixle alerts out twice Friday asking subscribers not to park on borough roads.
"Be advised it is prohibited to park on snow covered roads," police said. "Vehicles left upon the road are subject to fines according to BO 88-22."
Fines can also be imposed on drivers who do not clear off their cars before driving with snow on them. This can cause a safety risk to motorists surrounding the snow-covered car.
Butler and Bloomingdale have similar parking bans that ask residents not to park on streets, not only during and after snowstorms, but during certain times throughout the season. Particularly after snowfall, however, police in both boroughs also ask residents and visitors not to park on borough roads.
