A growing safety concern needs to be addressed in Rising Sun.  More and more, individuals are parking vehicles very close to intersections.  This action increases the likelihood of accidents involving vehicles and even pedestrians.

As a reminder, city ordinance 71.01 prohibits parking within 20 feet of any intersection or crosswalk.  For the safety of people and property, the City of Rising Sun asks everyone to please adhere to the ordinance. Your cooperation and concern of your fellow citizens are appreciated.

There are some exceptions where it is permissible to temporarily park within 20 feet of an intersection or crosswalk: up to three minutes for a vehicle loading and unloading passengers or up to two hours for a freight-carrying vehicle unloading materials.
