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.
