Spring City Vehicles Towed, Ticketed for Violating Snow Emergency Ordinance

Police Chief Anthony Kuklinski thanked residents who obeyed the parking restriction.

Two vehicles were towed and over 30 vehicles were ticketed in Spring City for failing to heed the borough’s Snow Emergency status, restricting parking in the municipality on Thursday night and Friday morning.

Spring City Borough Police Chief Anthony Kuklinski took to Facebook to thank the residents who kept the areas clear that are outlined in the borough ordinance.

“As a result of your diligence the Streets and Roads Department was able to effectively remove the snow and treat the road surfaces without any distractions,” said Kuklinski. “To those that didn't, your reminder for the next time was left on your wind shield, specifically a yellow envelope for Violation of the Borough Ordinance.”

The snow emergency remains in effect until midnight.

According to Spring City Borough ordinance, the following roads must stay clear: East side of Main Street from Borough Line Road to Bridge Street; Broad Street from Church Street to Borough line; the north side of Hall Street from Main to Church streets; the north side of Chestnut and Walnut streets and Pikeland and Yost avenues from Main to Wall streets; the south side of Poplar street from Main to Cedar street and the north side of Washington Street from S.&K. to Wall streets.

Good Job. Heed the signs or pay the fines. Pretty simple. This was not a surprise storm.

Did I mention that I like the police chief? He is a breath of fresh air in this stagnate town!

So did they lift it yet as Royersford lifted their snow emergency early?

The SC plow moves the snow into the parking spaces, so those 'snow emergency' roads do create emergences for the residents after the storm - until it melts. The smart ones pay the fine, and keep their parking space.

Smart you think? Ask what the people parked on the Halloween parade route learned this year. There's a new sheriff in town. He tows cars. Keep on violating the ordinance so I can laugh at you when they tow the car.

Smart ones pay the fine, and keep their parking space; its a cost of living in SC. The neighbors who cooperated, moved their cars, were rewarded with piles of snow in their former, parking spots, so are screwed.

Read the article. Cars were towed... and then they plowed the space closed anyway. Why pay the extra $150? Yes, they charge you for the tow and impound.

If you can't read road signs, or you intentionally ignore them. Perhaps you should not be driving. Keep towing those who think they are better then the rest of us. And keep that revenue coming in from the people that have not been blessed with a full brain. For reasons unknown to me, the Lord chooses to only give most of us full use of our brain.
