8/19- It's typical during the summer months for more citizens to be out walking. Whether it be a parent or caregiver taking their infant for a stroll, workout enthusiasts out for a run or walk, or kids riding their bicycles to and from a summer destination. It's important that all of us do our part in keeping the sidewalks clear so that everyone can enjoy these activities safely.

Lately we have seen an increase in the amount of vehicles either fully or partially blocking a sidewalk. When this happens, people are left little choice but to walk out onto the roadway in order to get around the obstacle. We ask that you please be mindful of where you are parking your vehicle so that we can avoid this inconvenience and safety hazard.

Our officers will begin to conduct more strict enforcement of this violation, punishable by a $20 fine, in the coming weeks. We would rather see vehicles parked correctly than to start writing tickets.

Remember, if a child stroller can not pass by in the amount of room left between your vehicle and the abutting property, you are probably too close.
