Officials in Fayetteville, NC, are temporarily changing
their tune on banning big trucks from parking in residential neighborhoods.
Earlier this week, two council members in the city proposed
a moratorium, which prevents truckers from being fined $100 for parking their
trucks in front of their homes.
“Let’s get real,” Curtis Worthy, one of the council members
who proposed the measure, told the Fayetteville Observer. “These people
are trying to make a living.”
The moratorium was originally proposed as a removal of the
zoning ordinance, but instead will be placed on hold while the city’s
Department of Inspections studies other parking options, the Observer reported.
