In busy Sundance week, limousines become an issue in Park City

by Jay Hamburger, THE PARK RECORD

The Park City Police Department last week received complaints involving limousines, including two at a Sundance Film Festival screening room.

On Saturday, Jan. 31 at 9:50 a.m., someone told the police a limousine at the Park City Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center may have attempted to hit an employee the day before. A parking attendant apparently reported the case. The Police Department indicated it found the vehicle and identified the driver, but public police logs did not provide details.

The day before, on Friday, Jan. 30, a black limousine was reported to be driving recklessly in a parking lot on the 1200 block of Little Kate Road at 8:42 p.m. The driver nearly collided with several vehicles and almost hit pedestrians, the police were told. The driver did not follow instructions from parking attendants, the police said. The Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center is on the same block.

At 2:10 p.m. on Friday, a limousine was reported to be parked on the 200 block of Main Street. Parking on Main Street was heavily restricted during the Sundance Film Festival. The driver moved the limousine.

On Sunday, Jan. 25 at 7:51 p.m., meanwhile, someone reported limousines and taxis were spotted at the turnaround where Main Street, Daly Avenue and Hillside Avenue intersect. They moved.
