Traffic Safety and Parking Enforcement

 

The Traffic Safety Officer bears primary responsibility for the enforcement of parking ordinances with the city. He works fulltime,Monday through Friday during the day, as well as during special events. The TSO is also trained as a Reserve Officer and assists in Patrol Duties when necessary.

Parking Against the Flow of Traffic

Motorists must park with the flow of traffic. No person can cause a vehicle to be parked in such a manner which, when leaving that space, will require the vehicle to cross a lane of traffic in order to proceed in the direction in which the vehicle was parked.

Winter Parking Ban
From November 15th to March 15th of each year, motorists cannot park any longer than 30 minutes between the hours of 12:00am(midnight) and 6:00am of any day except for bona fide emergencies. The city may extend the parking ban after March 15th as necessary until such winter conditions abate.

Immobilizing and Towing
When an individual has three or more outstanding (unpaid) tickets, any vehicle registered to them may be booted or towed whether they are in violation at the time of impoundment or not. In order to have the boot removed or vehicle released, the owner must pay all unpaid tickets, plus a Boot Fee of $75.00 if booted. The owner must get a complete list of tickets by appearing at the Bath Police Department. Correct payment (cash or check) will be accepted at the police department. If the payee does not have the correct payment, they must pay at the Bath Police Department at 250 Water Street during normal business hours.
