When to visit a beautiful place? When to park in the shade

PARKING IS NOT FREE in Washington state.

A new rule issued by the state Department of Transportation requires all drivers to stop for a minimum of 10 minutes while they wait for a permit to park.

The rules are expected to make Washington the first state to require all drivers and passengers to stop when a car parks in the middle of the street or along a parkway, as well as during a traffic signal or red light.

State officials said they’ve seen the public outcry about the rules and want to get the word out.

“The state of Washington is taking a big step in the right direction to protect our most vulnerable citizens,” Gov.

Jay Inslee said in a statement.

Inslee’s office said he’s encouraged by the recent increase in fatalities and serious injuries to people riding in vehicles.

More than 7,000 people were injured in vehicle crashes in Washington last year, according to data from the state’s Department of Public Health.

On Monday, the state said it will also require passengers to park their vehicles at a safe distance from each other, and drivers will have to use a pedestrian signal if they encounter a pedestrian.

Washington also is expected to create new requirements for the storage of medical devices in cars, a measure Inslee has advocated for.

And Washington state will ban drivers from leaving their vehicle unattended during a red light and from driving to a designated spot.
