McCOOK, Nebraska -- The McCook police department has received numerous complaints regarding the parking of campers, boats and trailer on public streets for extended periods of time, obstructing traffic and the view of motorists and pedestrians. These larger vehicles create especially problematic situations during cold weather conditions. The police department will be responding to these complaints in accordance with City Ordinances.
The police department is taking this opportunity to remind residents that campers, boars and trailers are subject to the 72-hour parking time limit on public streets, as are all other vehicles. All vehicles parked or abandoned on city streets longer than 72 hours may result in a parking citation for the owner of the vehicle and the vehicle may be towed, at the owner's expense.
City ordinances do allow campers to be parked in the front driveway only of residences from April 1-Nov. 1, as long as the vehicles do not create a safety hazard, such as obstructing sidewalks or the vision of motorists or pedestrians.
