Don’t Blow Your Horn in Bristol Without Permission

Bristol City Hall

Every city and town has ordinances (laws) to protect its citizens and enforce the quality of life they want to provide.

Bristol is no different.

Some laws are strange and outdated.

For example, if you plan to solicit a business in Bristol be careful not to blow your horn.

No peddler, solicitor or canvasser, or any person in his behalf, shall shout, make any outcry, blow a horn, ring a bell or use any sound device, including any loud-speaking radio or sound-amplifying system upon any of the streets, alleys, parks or other public places of the city or upon any private premises in the city where sound of sufficient volume is emitted or produced therefrom to be capable of being plainly heard upon the streets, avenues, alleys, parks or other public places, for the purpose of attracting attention to any goods, wares or merchandise which such peddler proposes to sell.

Another ordinance states you can’t throw a dance in Bristol without a permit.

The term “public dance,” as used in this article, shall mean any dance to which admission can be had by the purchase, possession or presentation of a ticket or token for which a charge is made for caring for clothing or other property, or any other dance to which the public generally may gain admission with or without payment of a fee.

No person shall conduct a public dance in the city without first procuring a permit pursuant to this article.

Applications for the permit shall be made to the chief of police and shall state the location of the proposed dance.

This ordinance states you must immediately put money in the meter when parking and park correctly.

Upon a vehicle’s entering a parking meter space, the operator of such vehicle shall immediately deposit or cause to be deposited in the parking meter such proper coin of the United States as is required by the traffic authority for such parking meter and as is designated by proper direction on the meter. Failure to comply with the foregoing shall constitute a violation of this article. Upon the deposit of such proper coin, and placing such meter in operation, the parking meter space may be lawfully occupied by such vehicle during the period of parking time which has been prescribed for the part of the street, or off-street municipal parking lot, in which such parking meter space is located. If such vehicle shall remain parked in any such parking meter space beyond the parking time limit fixed for such parking meter space, and if the parking meter shall, by its dial and pointer or otherwise, indicate such illegal parking, then in that event, such parking overtime and beyond the period of legal parking time shall be deemed a violation.

Another one states you can’t have a going out of business sale without obtaining a license from the City.

It shall be unlawful for any person in the city to advertise or hold out by any means that any sale of goods, wares and merchandise is a removal or going-out-of-business sale, or a sale of goods damaged by fire, smoke or water, unless a license is first obtained to conduct such sale from the city clerk.

A full list of Bristol’s ordinances is available online.
