As if anyone needed an additional reason to buy a house in Highland Park, here’s one more: The town’s police are not going to let a bunch of rowdy football fans park their cars in front of your house.
During the past two weekends, SMU’s Gerald J. Ford Stadium has hosted three high school playoff games. As noted by our friends over at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate, Highland Park enacted a “residents only” parking zone in the neighborhood immediately south of the stadium on each game day.
Saturday night’s game was the real barn-burner of the three. Allen erased an 18-point deficit to defeat Skyline and earn a berth in the Class 6A Division I state championship game. After watching that comeback victory, fans must have been euphoric as they made their way back to their vehicles. But that euphoria was short-lived for at least seven people whose vehicles were not where they left them. Highland Park police had the following cars and trucks towed from Drexel Drive, Cornell Avenue, and Sewanee Avenue:
- A black Toyota Tacoma registered to a Garland address
- A white Ford Explorer registered to a Richardson address
- A gray BMW 530 registered to a Preston Hollow address
- A white Chrysler 300 registered to a Duncanville address
- A white Chevrolet Camaro registered to a Murphy address
- A white Chrysler PT Cruiser registered to a Pleasant Grove address
- A black Dodge Journey registered to a Northwest Dallas address
If anyone reading this happens to be missing a vehicle matching any of those descriptions, you can find it at Jordan Towing’s impound yard in Plano.
