SULLIVANS ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - If the state Department of Transportation approves, there will be hundreds fewer parking spaces for day trippers heading to the beach on Sullivans Island this summer.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reports (http://bit.ly/1oRuULtlof ) the town has sent DOT its plan to limit parking to one side of the street.

There are now about 4,500 parking spaces and the change will reduce that number to about 2,800. The town has hired an engineer to determine how many parking signs are needed and where they should be placed.

The change should mean less congestion for fire engines and ambulances.

The nearby Isle of Palms is also changing its beach parking rules, limiting parking to streets close to the beach and to pay parking lots.
