Piermont lawmakers have updated legislation in an effort to crack down on commercial vehicles hogging several spaces overnight.
Trucks had been parking overnight in spaces located at Piermont Landing and in municipal lots and village streets, often preventing residents from finding spots. Overnight parking is defined as the hours between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m.
"Space is a problem," said Michael O'Shea, Piermont's chief of police, about available spaces.
But there was no law in place that allowed village police chase away overnight trucks and vans.
Under the newly revised legislation, however, commercial vehicles are prevented from spending the night downtown or in local lots.
"They will be banned from overnight parking altogether," Sanders said.
A commercial vehicle is any weighing in over 10,000 pounds, the law states.
Piermont Police also , ticketing trucks that exceed the road's weight limit or are operating illegally.
