- From Virginia Department of Transportation:
Next week, Virginia State Police will begin a special parking enforcement campaign at a Prince William County commuter lot. The operation is to protect the safety of drivers and pedestrians using the lot due to vehicles parking outside of designated parking areas and creating traffic hazards. The concentrated effort will target the Horner Road commuter parking lot at Prince William Parkway and Interstate 95 in Woodbridge.
Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 11, VDOT will post message boards in the commuter lot to alert drivers in advance of the campaign. In order to educate commuters and warn them about the upcoming enforcement campaign, Virginia State Police will place fliers on vehicles that are illegally parked during the week of Oct. 11.
State police will begin enforcement of the campaign Monday Oct. 17. Vehicles illegally parked will be ticketed. In some cases, if it is necessary, vehicles will be towed.
Numerous vehicles are illegally parked each day in the Horner Road commuter lot, which has a capacity of more than 2,000 vehicles. In certain instances, vehicles are parked in one of two travel lanes which impedes the flow of traffic and is a safety concern. In the event of a medical emergency, illegally parked cars could restrict emergency vehicle access.
