With winter right around the corner, Rockland Police Chief John Llewellyn has announced that the All Night Winter Parking Ban will take effect on all public streets and roads in town on Monday, December 3rd.

The ban means that residents and visitors will not be allowed to park any vehicle on any public street in Rockland for more than 1 hour, between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

Chief Llewellyn says “courtesy tags” will be given out during the first week of the ban as a reminder.

But, as of Monday December 10th, at 1:30 a.m., parking violators may be issued parking tickets for a violation of the All Night Winter Parking Ban.

The fine is $25.

And, during the winter months, vehicles also may be towed without prior warning due to excessive snow accumulation and the need for the Highway Department to clear the streets of snow.

The fine for impeding snow removal on a public way is $50 and the vehicle may be towed away at the owner’s expense.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
