Parking on public roadway

Good morning folks,

When it snows someone parks their car on the south leg of the southern Hovenweep/FR10 junction. That location would really slow fire apparatus trying to negotiate the north leg, because the south leg is jammed up by a parked car.

Please know that it's not acceptable to park on a public roadway.
