Winter Parking - A Reminder From ( ..... the Department of Public Works .... Winter has made an early appearance this year. The Plumas County Department of Public Works would like to remind residents that we all have a responsibility to park our vehicles off County Roads and State q Highways during and after snow storms, so that snow removal equip..:) ment operators can do their job effectively. Vehicles left on the street not ...... only hinder this operation, they contribute to the narrowing of traffic. lanes - making winter driving more difficult, and they are subject to ' from snow plows (and other vehicles). Besides all it's ill Local Ordinance (Section 4-3.502 of the Plumas County the Californ'aLi Vehicle Code" (CVC 22510) prohibit parking a vehicle on road O;sStr:et or in any way hindering snow remo d That mea parking at the end of a street, on a cul-de-sac or on the shoulder of the road either..These are the locations we need to preserve for snow storage. Enforcement of these statutes may come in the form of having your vehi- cle towed (at your expense), and a citation, which takes up our time and your money. Now is the time to plan ahead for snow removal. Fihd a plac e3to park your vehicle off the road right-of-way and make sure yot q can get to it during snowy conditions. This law applies to trailers, boats, "RVs and disabled vehicles as well, so it's time to find a place for them, too. A related problem for Public Works is that of disposing of snow you are shoveling or plowing from your property. One place it does not belong is out in the street. The act of dumping snow or other fl materials on a public roadway is also a violation of California Vehicle code (CVC 23112). When we plow snow placed in this manner it either becomes part a berm in frrfif" of your property (or your neighbor's) or packs in the street, creating an icy, dangerous bum which could contribute to an accident. Please keep your snow on your property. Your cooperation will not only make our job easier but provide a safer dri- TM ,ring environment for all Plumas County residents.
