FAYETTEVILLE POLICE TO ENFORCE FIRE LANE PARKING VIOLATIONS AT FAYETTEVILLE HIGH SCHOOL

02/15/2013

Fayetteville Police Chief Greg Tabor announced today the Fayetteville Police Department will be enforcing fire lane violations at Fayetteville High School.        

Since the construction of the new section of Fayetteville High School, the Fayetteville Police Department and the Fayetteville Public School’s Administration have received several complaints about vehicles parked in the fire lane in front of the new buildings.    Vehicles parked in the fire lane can obscure pedestrian traffic crossing out into the parking lot placing pedestrians in danger of being hit by moving traffic.     Fire lanes are designed and allow for emergency vehicles to gain rapid access to the school.      

The Fayetteville Police Department, the Fayetteville Fire Marshall’s Office and the Fayetteville Public School’s Administration have worked together to make sure the fire lanes are properly marked, and beginning Monday, February 18, 2013, the Fayetteville Police Department will be enforcing violations of the fire lanes at Fayetteville High School.   Any vehicle found parked in the fire lane is subject to a citation and the vehicle being towed at the owner’s expense.  We appreciate the public’s help with our efforts to provide a safe environment for our high school students and staff.
