BRIGHTON, Utah — The town of Brighton is taking action to deal with parked cars in Big Cottonwood Canyon. Officials there say the parked cars are causing issues with residents.
Unified Police started warning drivers last week that a new crackdown was coming for those who block driveways and roads with their vehicles.
However, instead of a warning, illegal parking on a public roadway will lead to a $150 fine. If you park on a private road or driveway without permission you can expect to pay to get your car out of the impound lot.
Town officials have said parked cars have become a safety concern making it hard for emergency responders to get where they need to go.
