Quincy Police warn drivers about no parking zones at K of C Barbecue

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Thousands will be heading down to the Knights of Columbus Barbecue this weekend in Quincy, and that means finding parking will be tricky.

But, the Quincy Police Department is warning drivers that they need to watch where they park.

Quincy Police officials will be patrolling the area on bikes to enforce the no parking zones in the subdivisions near 36th and State Street.

Nearby residents say the no parking signs have helped in recent years because parking used to be a problem in subdivisions.

"They would block our spots and we wouldn't be able to park where we needed to be able to get to our place or if we had people that we wanted to come over they would take our spots so our friends had to park way far away," said Courtney Sutherland.

If you're caught parking in the no parking zones you could receive a $25 ticket and if you're blocking a driveway you will be towed.

Police are encouraging people to take the shuttle there which picks people up at Flinn Stadium.
