The Newark Police Department will enforce the city’s “No Parking on Snow Covered Roads” regulations starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 14th, due to the expected snow. The latest forecasts predict snowfall of up to 24 inches.
Signs have been posted on streets throughout the city, including on snow emergency routes, to notify motorists of the streets designated for no parking during snow storms. Motorists are urged to stay off the streets altogether in these conditions, and to look for the sign pictured above to identify the streets where the parking ban will be enforced.
In addition to keeping their cars off of the designated streets, previous storm guidance advices Newark motorists to park on the side of the street with even-numbered addresses in order to make way for snow plows and emergency vehicles. The city will not enforce alternate side parking due to the weather.
Residents are also advised not to shovel snow into the streets or into storm sewers, as this can be a safety hazard and an additional cost to the city, which will need to re-plow those roads. Both actions are punishable by a fine.
Instead, deposit snow on your lawn, or on the side or rear of your home.
During snowstorms, city vehicles spread salt and plow roads as conditions dictate. The first priority for salting is hills, bridges, and major arteries that lead into and out of the city’s borders.
The Department of Public Safety is coordinating responses to weather-related emergencies and other incidents through the combined use of Police, Fire and Office of Emergency Management Personnel.
The city also offers the following “good neighbor” tips to help with the snow removal effort:
Park vehicles in your driveway, so that the plows can get through to remove snow and ice.
If possible, share your driveway with neighbors or secure vehicles on off-street lots.
Clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of your storefront or home.
“Adopt” hydrants and/or drains near your home–help your neighbors and the city by removing snow and ice from them. Shoveling snow on top of fire hydrants is a public safety hazard, illegal, and punishable by an up to $1,000 fine.
If you must venture out, take public transportation or carpool where possible.
Home and property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from all private residential and commercial property, including areas in and around driveways, sidewalks, and walkways. The City of Newark does not provide snow removal services to private property – residential or commercial.
