ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Starting Friday, police in St. Peters will ticket people for vehicle violations as part of a neighborhood sweep to improve quality of life.

Officers will be checking various neighborhoods around town for ordinance violations. They will be looking for unregistered or expired cars, commercial vehicles and recreational equipment parked in the road.

In St. Peters it is illegal to park a boat or RV in a driveway for more than 10 days a year. Police will be ticketing those who do not comply with the law.

“There may only be one boat in a neighborhood, but if every single person in that neighborhood stored their boat at their residence, or stored their RV, then it starts to lower the value of the homes in that area because who really wants to look out their window and see 30 RVs parked out on the street,” St. Peters Media Relations Officer Melissa Doss said.

The law has been around for years and St. Peters police said they do regular checks but have not done a neighborhood sweep in a couple of years.
