For the safety of people and property, the City of Rising Sun asks everyone to adhere to city ordinance 71.01.

Under the ordinance, parking is prohibited within 20 feet of any intersection or crosswalk. More and more parked vehicles have been observed very close to intersections in recent weeks, according to the City.
