Snow Advisory 1/7/17
|Date:||January 7, 2017|
Parking of any vehicle on any portion of a public street is prohibited whenever snow is falling and the accumulation is such that it covers the public streets in the Township and plowing is required.
Snow accumulations have an impact on roadway width. Motor vehicle laws of New Jersey state;
"In no event shall a person park or leave standing a vehicle whether attended or unattended, upon a roadway, unless a clear and unobstructed width of not less than fifteen feet upon the roadway opposite the standing vehicle is left for free passage of other vehicles thereon, nor unless a clear view of the vehicle may be obtained from a distance of two hundred feet in each direction upon the roadway."
Dirvers must be cognizant of the impact their parked vehicle will have upon traffic traversing the roadway, especially emergency vehicles. Any vehicle found to be obstructing clear passage will be issued a summons and impounded.
