GRPD Warns Drivers Not to Cut Through Parking Lots to Avoid Construction
The Grand Rapids Police Department is warning residents about cutting through businesses' parking lots to avoid construction.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, the GRPD warned residents of the fines and points attached to being ticketed for the offense.
The offense, which is technically referred to as using "private/public property to avoid the device" is punishable by a $170 fine (because it's in a construction zone) and two points on your driver's license.
Officials have mainly been seeing this happen at the intersection of Michigan St. and Fuller Ave., which shut down completely on Saturday for resurfacing and will likely remain closed for two weeks.
