|A number of residents have complained about trucks parking on the Flavor Pict Road right-of-way over night and for days on end. |
Their concern is that this practice can have an adverse effect on the safety of our community.
Per the Palm Beach County Code this practice is illegal. Chapter 19 - Article II - Division I - Section 19 - 21 Parking Regulations (w) of the Palm Beach County Code states the following.
Parking prohibited, special vehicle types. No person shall park, store, or keep a truck of one-ton capacity or over, commercial vehicle, recreational vehicle, boat or trailer, on any public street, or other thoroughfare or any right-of-way for a period exceeding one (1) hour in any twenty-four (24) hour period, each such period commencing at the time of first stopping or parking unless engaged in loading or unloading of passengers or materials.
Enforcement per the code is to be done by law enforcement officers and parking enforcement specialists who may issue a ticket form to the driver or if the vehicle is unattended, attach such ticket to the vehicle in a conspicuous place.
That said, concerned residents should call the Sheriff's Office at 561-688-3400 if they see trucks parked for extended time periods on the Flavor Pict Road right-of-way.
