Downtown (Main St. & Mineral St.)
This is more of a parking trap than a speed trap, but it’s a similar enough issue that drivers visiting the town should be warned about it. The town has very strictly enforced time limits on parking (two hours in the parallel spaces on Main St. and Mineral St., four hours in the angled parking spaces in the Mineral St. parking lot between the State offices and Park St.). If you happen to park just before the parking enforcement officer makes his rounds, you may wind up being ticketed even if you’re only a few minutes over the limit.
To tell if he’s patrolling that day, look for white chalk marks on one of your tires. If he is, you’ll need to go through the silly ritual (that those who work downtown go through most days) of moving your car from one space to another available space. Note: There are generally plenty of empty spaces, thus the parking rules are not protecting a limited supply of parking spaces, only creating an unneeded nuisance and expense.
