REMINDER: OVERNIGHT PARKING RESTRICTIONS IN OUR CITY
NOVEMBER THROUGH APRIL
Overnight parking on city streets or in city-owned parking lot during the months of November through April is not permitted between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. There may be certain exceptions and permission will be granted at the discretion of the shift commander by calling Wood County Dispatch at 715-387-4394. However, no vehicles are permitted on city streets during a declared snow emergency.
For city-owned parking lots, a permit may be purchased at the police department to enable parking between these hours in designated areas only of specified city lots. The permit for all-night parking in a city-owned lot does NOT allow the holder of the permit to park the vehicle on the street during the night.
Parking regulations as stated above apply unless a street is otherwise signed or a snow emergency has been declared pursuant to Section 13-35(3) of the city's municipal colde.
The ordinance was created for ease of street maintenance and snowplowing.
New Law Banning Use of Cell Phones While Driving in Construction Zones
A new law took effect Saturday, October 1st that bans Wisconsin drivers from talking on their cell phones in construction zones.
Drivers will still be able to talk on the phone if they use hands-free devices. But, if you're caught holding a phone to your ear, you'll get a ticket and face fines of up to $178.
The Wisconsin DOT said there have been nearly 10,000 crashes in construction zones from 2011 - 2015.
"Most of the injuries and deaths occurring in construction zones are actually motorists, people driving through those areas, so that's equally as important as protecting the workers out there," Capt. Steve Krueger of the Wisconsin State Patrol said.
Texting while driving is already banned in Wisconsin.
The new construction zone law goes into effect Saturday.
School Bus Warning Lights - New State Regulation
