[simage=5972,200,y,left]As the Knoxville Police Department gets ready for Knoxville Nationals, they are starting to announce some changes. Knoxville Police Chief Dan Losada tells KNIA/KRLS News that no parking will be allowed on Larson Street this year between 2pm and 2am. Losada says that when cars are parked along the north side of Larson, it makes driving so tight that there are concerns about emergency vehicles being able to fit in the street. This change helps guarantee that emergency vehicles will be able to quickly reach their destination.
