Today the Bismarck Police Department issued this reminder concerning the parking of campers and trailers on Bismarck residential streets.
“It is unlawful for any person to park or leave standing any boat, bumper pull travel trailer, fifth wheel trailer, pull type camper, motor home, house car, bus, mini motor home, or trailer on the public right-of-way in any residentially zoned area from December 1 to March 31. Any person violating this section is subject to a fine of fifteen dollars ($15) per each day of violation.”
A boat, bumper pull travel trailer, fifth wheel trailer, pull type camper, motor home, house car, bus, mini motor home, or trailer parked or left standing in violation of this section for a consecutive period longer than forty-eight hours shall be considered abandoned, and it may be towed by the Police Department. The owner would be responsible for the tow bill as well as any storage costs before it is released.
The reason for prohibiting parking of these vehicles in residential areas over winter is they hinder snow removal operations. Your cooperation in removing these vehicles from Bismarck residential streets prior to December 1st is appreciated.
