LETHBRIDGE - Campers and RV's are out as the summer weather encourages people to spend
more time outdoors.
They are considered vehicles under the Traffic Safety
Act, so they have to follow the same rules as far as being parked 1.5 meters
away from people's driveways and five meters away from the corners of properties,
fire hydrants, and crosswalks.
Travel trailers and R-V's can only be left
'on-street' for up to 48-hours, then have to be moved.
If you have a 5th
wheel or a bumper pull trailer, you have to park it with the hitch fully onto
your property, it can't be hanging over the sidewalk.
Senior Bylaw Officer Dave Henley says it's all complaint based, so if you have
concerns about trailers being left for extended periods of time on the roadway
you can contact the Lethbridge Police dispatch at 403-328-4444.
