Large delivery trucks block and/or slow traffic when backing into the alleys. Why doesn't the Town do something about that?
Occurrences where delivery trucks negatively affect traffic flow for prolonged periods are rare. Vehicles parked in the alleyways force delivery trucks to wait on the side street; vehicles parked near the alley entrances reduce the ability for larger vehicles to turn into alleys. To resolve these problems, the Town of Banff has increased enforcement on alley parking bylaws. Additionally, no parking zones at alley entrances have been clarified with signage and pavement markings to ensure there is clearance for large trucks to turn.
