Consider Thy Neighbor When You Park
Rye is a beautiful older city which has many wonderful attributes, along with some challenges. Our quaint tree-lined streets are part of the charm, but many are narrow and with more vehicles than residents in Rye, those streets are often lined with cars — many of them oversized. Sometimes that acts as a traffic-calming measure, but more and more the crowded residential streets are causing tension between neighbors.
The City’s Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Committee has received numerous complaints from residents about other residents and neighbors blocking their sight distance, or not providing enough room to back out of their driveways. Untrimmed hedges are also an issue.
This is happening all over the city, near the schools, and in the Central Business
The Committee urges everyone to be more considerate when
they park on the street. Do not block driveways. Make
sure your sidewalks are not impeded by shrubbery, or anything else. Park within the allotted space in municipal lots.
Please check that you are not accidentally making it more difficult for all of us to enjoy our beautiful City. We want to keep everyone safe and in good cheer.
