The official start of winter is still just over a month away. Area police departments are recommending that drivers start thinking in winter mode when driving and parking on community streets. Winter parking bans in Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee go into effect December 1st. That means no overnight parking on Sturgeon Bay streets from 2:00 AM until 6:00 AM and from 1:00 AM until 6:00 AM in Kewaunee. Luxemburg’s parking ban, on the other hand, started November 1st from 2:00 AM until 6:00 AM. Police Chief Chris Gulbrand says with light snows so far he’s giving potential violators a break.
Chief Gulbrand reminds drivers that when heavier snows arrive and plows take to the streets anyone violating the parking ban will be ticketed.
