Why can’t we park on the streets overnight from 2:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.?


There are several important safety considerations behind this rule. The streets in Tanoan East are narrower than many city streets, and first and foremost, we need to keep the streets clear for fire trucks, ambulances, etc. in the event of an emergency. Also, having vehicles parked on the street make it difficult for two-way traffic to proceed normally. Vehicles parked on the street can interfere with a driver’s visibility – especially at night – making it difficult to ascertain whether it is safe to proceed or turn. If a driver were to have to veer to avoid an obstacle, he or she would have less room to do so with vehicles parked on the already narrow street. So remember to have all vehicles off the street between 2:00 and 6:00 a.m. – and remind your guests of this rule as well. Tickets and fines for guests’ vehicles are charged to the account of the homeowner they are visiting.
