or you may get a ticket or towed.
Fliers were placed on cars along Day Boulevard earlier this week. The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and MA State Police are reminding residents to obey the parking signs posted along the beachside of Day Boulevard. Overnight parking from 10pm-7am is prohibited.
Ticketing and towing have begun. So consider yourself warned.
Back in 2018, when new signage went up along the beach side of Day Boulevard between I and O, residents began scratching their heads. No overnight parking. But why?
We reached out to the Department of Conservation and Recreation in regards to the no overnight parking on the beach side on Day Boulevard and they sent the following:
The existing resident overnight parking areas have been maintained and new visitor parking areas have been created along beachside sections of Day Boulevard between I Street and O Street.
DCR is working to ensure there is ample parking for regional visitors looking to access the beaches and recreational facilities of South Boston. There is no overnight parking allowed on the beach side of William J. Day Boulevard. Prohibiting overnight parking on the reservation/beach side will ensure spaces are available to residents and visitors for daytime use. Furthermore, the movement of cars off the boulevard in the evening will allow for the necessary periodic maintenance and sanitation functions such as litter collection, trash removal, street sweeping, beach raking, and snow and ice removal.
So there you go!
