Parking During a Snow Emergency
Winter is just around the corner and with it is the possibility of snow. A snow emergency is in effect within the Town whenever a snow emergency is declared in effect by the Prince George's County Executive, the Maryland State Highway Administration, or the Maryland State Police.
During any period in which a snow emergency condition exists and a snow emergency is in effect, it is unlawful to park any vehicle on any part of any street designated as a snow emergency street, provided that signs have been erected on that street giving notice that such street is a designated snow emergency street.
During any period in which a snow emergency condition is in effect, it shall be unlawful to park any vehicle on the even-numbered side of any public street in the Town of Riverdale Park regardless of whether such street has been designated a snow emergency street. The "even numbered side" is the side of the public street on which any residence or business shall have an address that is divisible by the number two without a remainder.
Any vehicle parked in violation of the snow emergency provisions in Chapter 64 of the Town Code may be removed and impounded by or under the direction of any duly-authorized police officer. The owner of said vehicle, in addition to any towing or impound fee, shall be liable for a fine of $200.
The Public Works Department asks for all residents cooperation in following the Town Code to aid in snow removal. Public Works will do its best to keep streets salted and/or sanded especially where plowing is hampered by road conditions.
