Walmart Parking - Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Property owners in Hemlock Township, and any other municipality throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, may post their property to not allow specific vehicles to park.  In Walmart’s case, they have elected to post their parking lot to not allow trucks to park as they have had numerous occasions where trucks have damaged their property, including concrete stop sign posts, resulting in thousands of dollars in damage.  Walmart then contacted the Hemlock Township Police to enforce said signs.  There are no time limits that trucks are allowed to park and officers regularly patrol the area ticketing violators.

 Hemlock Township Police, as a courtesy, issue $25.00 parking tickets to vehicles who violate Section 3353 (A,3,ii) of the Vehicle Code of Pennsylvania titled Prohibitions in Specified Places; No person shall stop, stand or park a vehicle at any place where official signs prohibit parking.  A thirty-day grace period is allowed for the owner to respond to the parking ticket otherwise a traffic citation is filed with the Magisterial District Judge and the fines and costs total $124.50.
