Move Cars from Roads or Face Tow, Parsippany Police Say

Temperatures will be falling through the teens with a wind chill as low as 12 below.

With snowfall ending early Wednesday morning, Parsippany Police wants to remind residents that "parking on roadways within the township is prohibited when roads are snow covered to allow plows and salt trucks to work efficiently."

"Vehicles in viloation of this ordinance may be ticketed and/or towed," said Parsippany police.

The temporary parking prohibition for snow plowing and removal starts whenever snow has fallen and covers streets and highways and "shall remain in effect until after the snow has ceased and the streets have been plowed sufficiently and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic. Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation 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 such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle."
