Yellow Painted Curb – Don’t Park There
GOLF MANOR (6/28/2018) – The Golf Manor Village Council adopted State of Ohio uniform traffic and parking guidelines many years ago. These standard guidelines are used in municipalities throughout the State. The location of restricted areas at intersections is defined by State of Ohio ORC. 4511.68. Village Ordinance 351.03 (14) defines a yellow painted curb as an area where there is no stopping, standing or parking, also defined by ORC. 4511.68.
In summary, anyone who has a driver’s license from the State should already know that a vehicle parked on a public street must be parked at least 20 feet away from a crosswalk or intersection. People who have been parking closer than this to intersections, whether or not they are painted yellow, have been violating the law and could be cited. We are receiving complaints from drivers about cars being parked so close to intersections which inhibit the ability to see and have clearance to safely pass through intersections.
The Golf Manor maintenance crew is refreshing and repainting existing restricted parking, or marking areas that were not repainted after road construction was completed in previous years throughout the Village. No new restricted areas are being added.
The yellow curb marking is a courtesy to remind people parking cars where violation areas are located and that they could receive a citation if parked in a restricted area. As a part of our quality control, the painted curbs will be rechecked after the project is complete to make sure everything is per Ohio ordinance. But painted or not, the restriction as stated above is State law and people parking cars on public streets are required to follow it.
Remember that vehicles are prohibited from stopping, standing or parking at any place where the curbing or street is painted yellow .
