CHP Will Enforce Snow Area Parking
Sonora, CA — With the leaves turning brilliant colors and the first layers of snow falling in the higher elevations, the CHP is gearing up for the migration of snow lovers to the hills.
CHP Commander Mike Ayala says they are prepared this year due to an ordinance allowing officers to issue parking tickets with higher penalties and tow vehicles parked in the no parking areas of Little Sweden and Strawberry.
Ayala says the ordinance was established for pedestrian safety and people need to be aware that a fun day in the snow could turn to tragedy resulting in major injuries or even death. The Sonora CHP is asking the public to be responsible and be aware of their surroundings so a tragedy can be prevented.
