Parking on Mount Washington Drive between Century and Chandler Drive has become a danger for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike. The City of Bend, with Bend Parks and Recreation, and Bend Police have attempted for years to warn drivers about not parking on the roadside. Now, it will be illegal. Sergeant Tom Pine with Bend Police says they are trying to stop a tragedy from happening: "The issue has become the number of times there has been close calls. We’ve looked at this; we've looked at the speeds in that area. We’ve looked at the volume of traffic. We have young pedestrians, based on the school in the area and again the use of the recreational fields there, and so to this date, I am not aware of a particular incident. But the issue here is an attempt to prevent that kind of incident." Sgt. Pine says they will be issuing parking tickets from now on, and they will patrol the area during Skyline Field events.
