Georgia Town Placing Tough Restrictions On Truck Parking

Washington County to Ban Overnight Truck Parking

A Georgia town has passed a regulation that will prohibit trucks from parking within 300 feet of a residentially-zoned property unless the truck is unloading or loading.

Parking a truck within 300 feet of a residential area of Springfield, Georgia can cost you $100 for the first 24-hour violation.  A second violation is $250 and a third is $500.

Springfield City Manager Brett Bennett told local media that the ordinance is the result of “multiple complaints” from citizens about trucks “tearing up the roads, destroying yards in residential areas,  noise disturbances, mechanic work being done in the streets, and property owns with trucks parked on their property without permission.”

In order for a truck to park on private property, the truck driver must first have written permission from the property manager.
