§ 189-41 Parking prohibited. [Amended 3-18-2003 by Ord. No. 146-2003; 7-9-2014 by Ord. No. 256-2014]

A. There shall be no parking of any motor vehicle, trailer, boat or camper on any public roadway within East Whiteland Township at any time from the beginning of the accumulation of any frozen precipitation (snow or ice) until the precipitation stops and the roadway is cleared by the East Whiteland Township Public Works Department. If a property owner has no alternative location to park his/her vehicle during the time period when motor vehicles are not permitted to be parked on the public roadways, he/she may park the vehicle in designated areas in the Township Building parking lot.

B. Following the cessation of any such precipitation, no vehicle shall be parked on any public roadway until it has been completely plowed, cindered and salted for the full width of the paved cartway.

If a property owner has no alternative location to park his/her vehicle during the time period when motor vehicles are not permitted to be parked on the public roadways, he/she may park the vehicle in designated areas in the Township Building parking lot.

§ 189-44 Removal of vehicles.

Any police officer may remove or cause to be removed to a place of safety any unattended or illegally parked vehicle left standing upon any public road or private road during any period prohibited by this article when the vehicle is in such a position as to interfere with municipal snow removal, cindering and salting operations. The procedures in Article IV of this chapter shall govern removal of vehicles.
