NAPLES, Fla. - In between the red, white, and blue, residents in Naples are flying other colors: yellow and orange. Their message is clear, don't park on the grass. We spoke to people who have spent many Fourth of July's living near Gulf Shore Boulevard.
"It's very busy, tonight there will be cars all over the street."
"Traffic, like I said, starts around five or so and it doesn't clear out to 12 midnight or one o'clock because its just bumper-to-bumper traffic."
So these no parking zones between South Golf Drive and 18th Avenue South are a welcome sight.
"No parking on Gulf Shore should help the traffic flow considerably from where it has been in the past."
But there are concerns it will just force the cars on the smaller side streets."
"Parking will be difficult this time that's for sure."
Bonnie Marshall is one of the few homeowners with an open front-lawn policy.
"We don't mind if people park on our lawn, but because of all the rain this season, we hope that they'll park just one wheel on the lawn."
While the fireworks show is free, it can be a costly experience for residents.
"There's sprinkler heads in there, they get broken run over, $50 to fix the sprinkler head everytime."
