Questions Posted to "Ask a Dispatcher"
Q. The road on Wood Duck Ave was recently paved last year and No Parking signs were posted on both sides of the road then. The other day I parked my truck directly across from my driveway so that contractors could get access to my property. My truck was parked there for less than one hour and I recieved a parking ticket. Why are there No Parking signs posted on both sides of the street? How am I suppose to allow contractors to come in if they can not legally park anywhere? I also have a baby and parking across the street sometimes helps me to have enough room to unload the truck while wearing the baby.
Dear Juneau Resident,
JPD does enforcement but we don't decide what signs are posted. Our lead Community Service Officer did have some advice.
If you have concerns about why both sides are posted "No Parking", you can contact the Street Department and ask if there was a reason it was signed as such. It may have something to do with the width of the street. They could also go to http://www.juneau.org/tellittcityhall/tellit.php and submit a suggestion to have one side of the street restricted and the other restricted only during the winter months for snow removal. I think the best place to start would be to contact Streets to find out why the street was posted in that way. A compromise might be available depending on the underlying concern.
