Boonville Police can now write citations for anyone parking the wrong way on the town square.

City leaders had to approve the measure to deal with a growing problem that's been happening for years.

They tell us, people driving through Boonville have had to weave around cars parked at different angles around the square.

"What I was seeing before we passed this ordinance, there'd be a pickup truck with a two-by-four stuck about three feet out in the flow of traffic, or just trucks that didn't pull all the way up... which creates a dangerous situation for themselves as well as anybody driving through," said Boonville Mayor Charlie Wyatt. 

If your vehicle is found sticking out of the current parking spaces, causing issues for the flow of traffic you could be ticketed.

The city recently repainted lines setting up diagonal spots to increase parking capacity.
