6A Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2015 Feather River Bulletin ic wo It's December and there's been a little snow around Plumas County. The department of public works reminds residents that they have a legal responsibility to park their vehicles off county roads and state highways during and after snowstorms so that snow removal equipment operators can do their jobs effectively. Vehicles, especially RVs and trailers that are parked on the street, make snow removal difficult and they contribute to the narrowing of traffic lanes -- making winter driving tougher on everyone. More than just a big lump in the snow, such vehicles are a hazard to motorists and are subject to damage from snowplows and other vehicles. Here's the legal stuff: Local Ordinance (Section 4-3.502 of the Plumas County Code) and the California Vehicle Code (CVC 22510) prohibit parking a vehicle on the road or street right-of-way, or in any way hindering snow removal. That means no parking on or along the pavement, at the end of a street, around a cul-de-sac or on the shoulder of the road during snow removal. These are the locations that are needed for snow storage. If someone needs to park on the street short term, go ahead, but keep in mind that a vehicle needs to be out of the way when the plow comes by, and it can't be parked there at all if it will be blocking a lane. Anyone who violates these provisions might end up having the vehicle towed at his or her own expense and receive a citation. Plan ahead for a winter snows parking spot off the street and make sure that it is accessible during snowy conditions. This applies to trailers, boats, RVs and disabled vehicles as well, so it's time to fred a place for them, too. The winter parking law also requires the removal of basketball standards, firewood, etc. from the right-of-way. If a snowplow can hit it, it needs to be moved. Where should residents put the snow from snow-blowing or shoveling or plowing from their driveway or sidewalk? Not out in the street. The act of putting snow or other materials on a public right-of-way is a violation of CVC 23112 and Section 724 of the California Streets and Highways Code, and is a misdemeanor. When snowplow operators attempt to plow through this snow, most of it will become part of the berm in front of the resident's property (or the neighbor's). The rest of it will stay in the street as an icy, dangerous bump that could contribute to an accident. Obeying winter parking and shoveling rules makes the job of snow removal easier, safer and faster. More miles to plow and fewer plows mean that road maintenance crews need to be as efficient as they can. Because of reduced manpower in the county (down over 10 percent since 2005), residents will find that fewer warnings will be issued for illegally parked vehicles and more vehicles will be towed at the owner's expense.
