Berkeley Springs police to crack down on illegally parked vehicles this weekend

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The number of vehicles in Berkeley Springs is on the rise, and so is the number of vehicles parking in the wrong direction.

That according to Berkeley Springs Police Chief William Carper who said his department will begin enforcing a town ordinance regarding right and left parallel parking and angle parking on Sunday.

Carper warned motorists to park their vehicles on the side of the road with the flow of traffic.

He said doing otherwise forces motorists to cross into the wrong side of the road to park or to leave the spot ” which puts yourself and others in a harmful situation” and can cause an accident.

On Sunday, the Town of Bath police will place notices on cars parked the wrong way.

Beginning Oct. 15th, any vehicle found out of compliance will be ticketed.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the Bath Town Hall at 304-258-1102 or the Berkeley Springs Police Department at 304-258-1198.
