WPD Issues Parking Restrictions Ahead of Winter Storm

The following Nixle alert was issue Thursday afternoon.

A winter storm watch is in effect for Westfield from 1 p.m. Friday through 1 p.m. Saturday. With heavy snow anticipated, the Westfield Police Department asks that residents follow snow emergency parking restrictions.

Police Chief David Wayman advises that parking on the following streets or the identified portions thereof is prohibited when snow has fallen: 

- Central Ave (entire length); 
- Clark St (between W Dudley Ave & Edgewood Ave); 
- E Broad St (between Mountain Ave & N Euclid Ave); 
- Prospect St (between E Broad St & E Dudley Ave); 
- South Ave (between Westfield Ave & Central Ave); 
- W Broad St (entire length) 

Parking is prohibited until after the snow has ceased falling and the roads have been sufficiently plowed. 

The WPD will be enforcing these parking restrictions and thanks residents for their cooperation.

A special thank you to all Wesfield citizens who continue to leave their cars parked in the street when there is a snow-storm. It is wonderful to see the plows have to go around your vehicle and leave a narrower road for traffic to go through. Even better is the way you shovel out your car by throwing the snow back onto the road. It is better to keep your driveways clear, so you don't have to inconvenience yourself by having to move your cars in the driveway. You all win the citizenship award. Your award should be a ticket with a fine that will help defray some of the town's costs and keep our taxes down.

Dana, do you have any other excuses?

Let me guess, you are a four car household whose driveway can only fit 3 and your garage is full of storage.

no, but so what if it were. What is wrong with that? And how many houses have 3 car driveways?

why do you have to be so mean. People are talking about parking and you try and change the subject to something else. You are just mean
