The numerous vehicles parked on the roads in our Scott Lake community have come to our attention. Understandably, there are times it is necessary to park for a few hours by pulling off the edge of the road as far as possible. But a real safety issue exists when all four wheels are on the blacktop road. Some vehicles are parked on the roadway overnight, sometimes left there for several days.
** With darkness, a car isn’t as visible as in the daytime and runs the risk of being hit by a passing car, doing damage to both vehicles.
** If an emergency vehicle(s) needs to access the roadway, the parked car can be a real threat to the access they need to get through. This may slow their response time considerably.
Please be a safe citizen and park vehicles in the driveways or parking strips. If it is necessary to park on the roadway for a few hours, please pull as far off the road as far as possible.
