State police warn hunters against parking along highways

November 20, 2018

State police are urging hunters not to park on highways in the region when they take to the woods this fall.

Parking on limited access highways -- including interstates 79, 80 and 376; Routes 28, 60, 422; and the turnpike -- is unlawful under the state’s vehicle code.

It covers the entire width of the road.

“This means you can not park on the berms or in the grass next to the roadway,” state police said.

Parking on private property without the permission of the owner or person in control of the property is also prohibited.

“Park lawfully along side roads or seek permission from property owners to park when going hunting.”

A violation can result in fines plus court costs.
