Parking during Snow Emergencies

Whenever snow has fallen and the accumulation is such that it covers the streets or highways, after a forecast for the Philadelphia area predicting an accumulation of two inches or more has been broadcast on television or radio or published in the Burlington County Times, at least 12 hours in advance, an emergency shall exist, and no vehicle shall be parked on any street or highway within the Township of Willingboro.

The parking prohibitions shall remain in effect after the snow has ceased until the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic or with snowplowing or removal operations.

Whenever parking shall be prohibited under this section, and in order to facilitate the plowing and removal of snow accumulation in residential areas, the owner of a residential property may temporarily park vehicles on the landscaped front yard portion of the property where the vehicle or vehicles cannot be accommodated in the paved driveway. The permission to park on the landscaped front yard portion of the property shall end when the street has been sufficiently plowed to permit normal on-street parking without obstruction to traffic or interference with snowplowing or removal operations.

Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation of this section shall be deemed a nuisance and a menace to the safe and proper regulation of traffic, and any police officer may provide for the removal of such vehicle. The owner shall pay the reasonable costs of the removal and storage which may result from the removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.

Any violation of this section shall be punished as provided in ยง 356-43, Violations and penalties.
