The Iowa City City Council approved the second consideration of an ordinance prohibiting parking adjacent to a curb extension.

The City Code currently prohibits parking within 15 feet of an intersection, but curb extensions often go beyond 15 feet.

City officials said the combination of a curb extension and double parking often leads to traffic and other safety concerns during nightime hours, especially for taxi cabs.

City councilors approved the second consideration 7-0; they will vote on the third and final consideration during their next meeting, March 6.
