Lower Swatara Township Early Intervention Program Report
The Township has received complaints in reference to parking problems.
Parking regulations per the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code are as follows: Title 75, Section 3354 Additional Parking; sub section (a) Two-way highways.- Except as otherwise provided in this section, every vehicle standing or parked upon a two-way highway shall be positioned parallel to and with the right-hand wheels within 12 inches from the right-hand curb or, in the absence of a curb, as close as practicable to the right edge of the right-hand shoulder.
In other words, your vehicle (s) should be parked with the flow of traffic, not against it. Parking tickets or citations could be issued if not in compliance. We would prefer that consideration be given to applicable traffic laws and prefer not issuing parking tickets, but if the choice is made to ignore these regulations the Police Department is given little choice. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Police Department (717-939-0463).
