Cranston Parking Ban Begins at Noon

Get your cars off the streets.

Starting noon Saturday, cars parked on the street in Cranston could be towed thanks to a parking ban.

The ban was initiated in response to a winter storm that could dump anywhere from 4 to 12 inches of snow before Sunday morning.

Police are asking residents to stay off the roads during the height of the storm so plow crews and public safety can get around.

The ban will last until further notice.

I agree to some extent but what is the purpose (and cost) of sending snowplows down your street with the plows up because they can not plow because of all the cars parked on your street. Why have a ban ? BUT they have the time to ticket on a cool night with no sign of snow .

Ian it's all about man power, if there are calls for service then THEY come first before some cars parked on the street and for your information the city, not the police has inspectors that drive around all night and call the police when they need cars moved. If they don't call then they don't move and the plows will plow around the vehicles.

If I had all of the answers, I would not live in RI! LOL Some guy, why can't/don't you use your real name???? I understand there are procedures, guidelines, etc. that need to be adhered to, but don't put measures in and then not attempt to enforce them. There are cars parked EVERYDAY on Reservoir Avenue in good/bad weather right under "no parking anytime" signs, and they are not ticketed, and the police drive right by them.
