Don’t get ticketed or towed by parking on sidewalks

With ongoing construction projects across the garrison, parking can be a challenge. The Directorate of Emergency Services asks for the community’s cooperation about not parking on sidewalks.

Not only is parking on a sidewalk against the installation parking policy, it also prevents the Directorate of Public Works from clearing the sidewalks of snow and ice, and can prevent pedestrians from being able to safely use them.

With the snow falling now, DES will increase its enforcement of vehicles parking on sidewalks to enable DPW to clear walkways for  pedestrians to use. In some cases, where parking on the sidewalk prevents use of lowered curbs by people in wheelchairs or those with strollers, parking on the sidewalk could result in the vehicle being ticketed and towed.
