If read that headline you should be asking yourself the Old Section has sidewalks? Well, no they don’t – at least not really. But a sanitation enforcement agent believes there is enough of a sidewalk to issue a parking violation for “Sidewalk”
According to our tipster the parked car was parked a good distance from the intersection – more than enough for a garbage truck to make the turn.
The summons says “Code 50 “Sidewalk” Sub Section 4-08″ and is for $115
According to the city Code 50 is: “Stopping, standing or parking in a crosswalk. Note: Crosswalks are not always identified by painted street markings.” I didn’t realize that Canton Ct at Bartlet Place had a unmarked crosswalk.
Essentially this means that everyone on Canton Ct and entire Old Section is parking on the sidewalk. The Old Section already can’t park on dead ends, what are they to do now!?
We will keep you informed on the status of this ticket.
