Alternate Side Parking Coming
It's time to again embrace the alternate lifestyle. As in alternate side parking. Going into effect for municipalities in the area after tonight. The city of La Crosse is looking for alternatives for how to deal with those who leave their cars parked on the wrong side of the street during snow emergencies. A special committee met this week to begin those discussions. Towing those cars is an option that's been discussed. But an increase in the alternate side parking ticket price for cars that get in the way of snowplows is something that's more likely to happen. Current ticket in La Crosse is ten dollars. Police wrote about 18 thousand of them last year. Alternate side parking lasts until April.
