Winter parking ordinance goes into effect

Tonawanda News — Residents of the Town of Tonawanda are being reminded that the town’s winter parking ordinance will go into effect starting Nov.1. 

The ordinance prohibits parking on all streets in the Town of Tonawanda between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. from Nov. 1 to April 1, 2014.

The street right-of-way extends from sidewalk to sidewalk.

Section 215-13 of the code of the Town of Tonawanda restricts the parking of any motor vehicle or trailer on the landscaped portion of any front yard within the town. Section 1202A1B of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law prohibits parking of any motor vehicle or trailer on a sidewalk. 

Violators may be summoned to court and subject to a fine of up to $250. In addition to continuing to enforce the overnight ban on town streets, town police will also be watchful for cars parked on front lawns or blocking sidewalks, and will take appropriate action when such cars are located. 

Residents should be aware that parking their vehicle where it blocks the sidewalk impedes pedestrian traffic, which includes many school age children.
