December 1, 2007 -- Street parkers beware. The overnight winter parking ban goes into effect this weekend for key streets all over the city.
The ban, for key arterial streets, begins Saturday Dec. 1st at 3 a.m. It remains in effect until April 1, according to a city Department of Streets and Sanitation release.
Cars parked on critical arterial streets with a posted seasonal overnight restriction will be ticketed and towed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 7 a.m., whether or not there's snow on the ground, the release said.
Motorists should also refrain from parking on designated "Snow Routes" when two or more inches of snow has fallen. During a heavy snow, cars parking on "Snow Routes" could receive a ticket and possibly be relocated, the release said.
