Are These Winter Parking Rules In Effect Because There Was A Problem Before?
The City of Rochester doesn't directly answer this question on their FAQ, We do have a lot of narrow streets that become even more narrow when the plows can't clear curb-to-curb. That becomes dangerous for the average citizen, but even more so for citizens in need of emergency help, fire, police, etc.
I've lived here a long time and I've heard citizens complain and counsel members talk about citizens calling them to complain about the horrible winter clearing on our older streets. The rules will never satisfy everyone, but it's an honest to goodness best shhot at making sure everyone can get thru.
