New no-parking spot

Posted: Wednesday, December 03, 2003

Here's a heads-up for my fellow Juneauites who use the campground for winter skiing/walking: The U.S. Forest Service has apparently decided to make up its Bush shortfalls by putting a no-parking sign on the short strip between the entry to the campground and the parking area for Skater's Cabin. The sign is just below the 20 mph sign. They have been ticketing vehicles on the strip for a $25 fine.

It might have been better had they put a sign at the beginning and end of the strip saying "No Parking Between Signs." That would have been clearer and probably left a better taste in many people's mouths who have legally parked along the strip for years. Perhaps someone with the Forest Service might tell us all why they felt the prohibition was necessary.
