MEDFORD, Ore. — Police officers say they’re having to respond to drivers locked inside of Roxy Ann’s Prescott Park gates. Apparently, visitors are ignoring the signage in the area showing the gate will close at 8:00 p.m. Officers say they “routinely” go up and open the gate for people locked inside.
As you could imagine, that takes the officer about 20 minutes to respond. It’s also inconvenient for the drivers because Medford Police consider this a low priority call, so the driver will often have to sit and wait for awhile before getting help.
Officers say most of the people inside the gates are hikers taking advantage of the longer summertime daylight hours.
