Find the exact wording here:

Loose meaning: No person may stand or park a vehicle in a fire lane on public or private property.

In McPherson, the areas from which MPD receives the most frequent complaints are local schools and stores.

The fine for parking in a fire lane is only $15. However, the vehicle may be towed at the request of the property owner — private or public.
