Ask a Dispatcher
Q. Dispatcher, I am writing again about the neighbors that park on the street. Now that "winter" is here and there is a winter storm warning in effect. Please tell me there is a solution to this problem? I can only imagine how narrow our street will become with snow on either side, added vehicles also on the side of the street. I have called JPD like I said before, you guys did come out and tag their vehicle. I have written you guys on here ,I have even asked the neighbor nicely to move their vehicles, to which they become angry or just ignore me AND other neighbors who have asked them as well. Again, this is a risk even when the street is clear, with no snow for the elementary school children who have to wait for the bus right there. Oncoming vehicles can see past the vehicle on the side. So, we (myself and other neighbors) have just moved the spot where the children wait for the bus. I guess, we are just at a loss for a solution here.
Dear Juneau Resident,
Community Service Officers went to the address sent to us separately. The street is not signed for "No Parking" which limits the ability to issue citations. You could speak with CBJ Streets and see if a "No Parking' zone with signs would be appropriate. A barrier you might run into is that many streets in the CBJ are even more narrow than what you are experiencing. It might take some convincing that there are safety concerns in that area due to the parking along the street. CBJ Streets is good at interpreting the rules and requirements for street width.
