Starting Monday, if you park too close to a mailbox in Clarksville, you could be slapped with a $30 fine.
The new regulation will take effect on July 1, according to a city news release.
In May, the Clarksville Parking Commission voted to add this language to the City Code: “Parking too close or obstructing a mailbox that prohibits delivery shall be a violation.”
The new regulation will be enforced citywide by the Clarksville Police Department and the Parking Commission’s enforcement officers, who will write tickets. The fine for obstructing a mailbox is $30, payable to the Parking Commission, the release said.
The regulation also is designed to help citizens who asked for more control of on-street parking in neighborhoods.
