Park City police blotter: Vehicles with out-of-state plates left outside post office
The Park City Police Department on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 3:50 p.m. received a complaint about the short-term parking spots outside the Main Street post office, which were taken at the time with vehicles that had license plates from outside of Utah.
The person who contacted the police said they were “assuming” the people who left the vehicles there were not customers of the post office, according to department logs.
There are restrictions on the spots outside the post office, but people headed elsewhere on Main Street sometimes leave vehicles there anyway.
