Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Utica Police Department says there's no McParking for parents of students at Conkling School on Mohawk Street who are using the McDonald's parking lot across from the school.

There are two safe crossing zones and well-posted school safety zone times. Parents who drop off children in the McDonald's parking lot are not only doing so unsafely but they are also violating vehicle and traffic laws.

Police will increase their presence in the area to insure that students...and their parents....pay attention to the law.
