Juneau police are cracking down on illegal parking in the Auke Bay area.
With the nice weather recently there’s been an increase in Statter Harbor users parking trucks with boat trailers along Back Loop Road. That includes some people who park in the tow away zones from the DeHart’s intersection to University Drive.
According to a news release, JPD issued warnings the weekend of June 15th and 16th. Officers started impounding illegally parked vehicles this weekend.
The release says “Parking in the tow-away zones… can pose a safety risk to motorists trying to access Back Loop Road from side streets and driveways.”
