The Placer County Sheriff's Office shared the following note this week:
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office wants those traveling to beautiful Lake Tahoe for the holidays to bring home good memories, not a parking ticket!
Whether coming up to the mountains from the Bay Area or the valley, the Sheriff’s Office wants to remind drivers that there is NO parking on any county roadways or shoulders of roadways from November 1 to May 1. This includes roads in Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar and Homewood ski areas. Vehicles parked in these areas will be ticketed and may be towed. A ticket costs $55.
Roadways must remain clear for the operation of snow-removal equipment. Happy holidays and drive and park safely!
