Read the fine print on those street signs. The first Monday in September signals the beginning of a new traffic schedule at some Toms River streets.
It's that time of year again, when as September hits, traffic regulations in effect through June 30 begin on a list of intersections and streets.
In some cases, September 1 is the start date for No Turn On Red between designated hours, such as the right turn from Clifton Avenue to Washington Street.
Elsewhere, streets surrounding schools become no-parking zones starting September 1.
The times may vary. For example, near Cedar Grove Elementary School, on the northside of Brookside Drive no parking is permitted from Carol Drive from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Near High School East, Ravenwood from Coolidge Avenue to Huckleberry Lane, there's no parking permitted 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, September 1 to June 30.
The complete list of affected areas is in the municipal code, available online, and the ordinance specifically dealing with no parking is found here.
