DO YOU KNOW THE “Parking Laws”?
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) receives numerous complaints on ”illegal” parking. Many of the reported situations are in violation of Florida statutes or Hillsborough ordinances.
HCSO has requested SCC Security Patrol to assist in an Educational Program on “Florida Parking Laws.” They are reaching out to the media and including information in public presentations. The Security Patrol is distributing information cards developed by HCSO to show the violations identified in the statutes and ordinances.
Security Patrol Captains are placing these information cards on vehicles in apparent violation. Our drivers identify these vehicles during their regular patrolling and forward to the Captain for action. These are NOT tickets but are issued for information only. The statutes and ordinances are in place to provide health and safety for our citizens. How we park impacts safe passage on sidewalks for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, those using walkers and all pedestrians. Possibly violating ADA laws.
Additionally, parking regulations are written to assure adequate traffic passage for fire trucks, ambulances and service vehicles (garbage trucks, delivery trucks, etc.). SCC Security Patrol is proud to assist HCSO in serving our community with this education effort.
