• Parking ban in effect for Patriots first home game


    FOXBOROUGH (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – The recently enacted bylaw in Foxborough that bans residents from parking vehicles on their property for a fee during major events faces its first real test on Sunday during the New England Patriots first home game.

    According to the Foxborough Patch, the parking ban which was put into place to reduce traffic and congestion was enacted for the first time on Aug. 24 and 25 for the New England Country Music Festival at Gillette Stadium. Police said there were no violations during the two-day festival which brought approximately 100,000 people to the area.

    Property owners found in violation of the parking ban on Sunday and for the rest of the season will be fined $100 for each car they charge to park.

    The Patriots game against the Arizona Cardinals kicks off at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Parking lots open for game day at 9 a.m., and Gillette Stadium's gates open at 11 a.m. for admission to the game.
