Watertown residents and visitors will not be able to park overnight starting Nov. 25 until April 1, according to police.

Effective at midnight on Nov. 25, no vehicle will be allowed to park on any public way for more than one hour between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m.

Watertown Police Chief Edward P. Deveau said in a statement that the ban will be strictly enforced.

The ban helps make for safer driving conditions, and allow Public Works Department employees to perform necessary street cleaning and maintenance, Deveau said.

For residents without sufficient off-street parking, the following municipal parking lots will provide temporary overnight parking:

  • The police station at 552 Main St.
  • Any public school parking lot
  • Marion Road at Victory Field
  • The lot at Boylston and Mt. Auburn streets

These locations are free, but all cars can only use the spaces between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Cars parked at a school property must move by 6 a.m. during snow storms to accommodate plowing. Violators may be towed.
