New Quincy city ordinance about oversized vehicles

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

If you have an oversized vehicle - there's a new city ordinance that restricts how long you can park it on the street.

On Monday, the city council passed an ordinance that added vehicles like buses, tow trucks, flat beds, and box trucks on a city street or alley. There was already a similar ordinance in place for freight trucks and tractor trailers.

Parking those vehicles will be restricted to one or four hours, depending on whether they are being loaded or unloaded.

Chief Rob Copley says there were several different reasons for this change. "Blocking the view for driving and for turning and pulling out of driveways and turning corners and things like that, part of it was just unsightliness - people didn't' appreciate having a large box truck parked in front of their house, things like that," he said.

Copley says the fine for violating the ordinance is a ten dollar parking ticket.
