City Tackles Parking Problem; “The sidewalk is not your own public driveaway”
Laredo police are warning the community that parking incorrectly may cost a fine.
Improper parking could cost you 20 dollars. Although it may seem like a small amount, authorities say they could also tow your vehicle.
“The public sidewalk is not your own public driveaway. So we understand the logistical issues that each household is facing. Sometimes the household is small but have multiple cars anyways. They are afraid to park their automobile in the street because the streets are too narrow, it’s a design issue.”
Authorities say parking on the sidewalk could cause accidents, as it provokes pedestrians and cyclists to use the street and they could be hit by oncoming traffic.
