|No Parking on State Roads During Maintenance Operations
A Reminder to Recreation Visitors in the White Mountains
The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) reminds residents and visitors that no parking is permitted on state-maintained roads during snow removal operations.
NH State law (RSA 262:32) allows for the towing of any vehicle that is "obstructing snow removal or highway maintenance operations."
The issue has arisen in the White Mountains Region where some hikers heading for recreation in the mountains have hindered winter maintenance operations by parking on the side of state roads. Visitors are strongly encouraged to park in designated parking areas.
