Parking Ban Sign Parking Ban Sign


Heading home last night about 9:00PM I passed this very visible warning on Cass Street on the west side of the Woodstock Square, across from Chase Bank. The purpose? To warn motorists not to park on the Square after 11:00PM. Much of Woodstock ten inches of snow remained on the streets of the Square, making parking difficulty and reducing the number of available parking spaces.

Three electronic panels gave ample warning of the 11:00PM time (time panel not shown), but what about any unlucky motorist who entered the Square from eastbound Jackson, Dean or westbound Jackson Streets and parked before passing the electronic sign?

After enjoying an evening at a Woodstock restaurant, would the driver return to find his car gone? I didn't look for other signs; regular "snow-prohibition" parking signs might be there.

6:59PM As a matter of fact, there are warning signs posted all around the Square, alerting drivers to the parking prohibition. And they look new.
