Sheriff: Illegal to park ‘for sale’ vehicles on public roads

Individuals who park vehicles they are trying to sell on public roads, highways or right-of-ways could find themselves saddled with a $50 fine for each day the vehicle is left out and could have their vehicle impounded, according to a recent statement from the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.

“With the nicer weather, we’re starting to see ‘for sale’ vehicles appearing again, especially in the parking area near Dillon Reservoir just north of Farmer’s Korner on Highway 9,” Sheriff John Minor stated in the release.

The law prohibits parking a vehicle on a public road, highway or right-of way for the sole purpose of displaying a ‘for sale’ sign or selling merchandise, except in an established market or with a permit, according to the statement.
