It's 3AM, do you know where your car is? Chicago's Overnight Parking Ban!
From Alderman Gene Schulter's office today:
Chicago's Overnight Winter Parking Ban begins tonight (12/01/10) at 3:00 am. The ban resumes for 107 miles of Chicago's most critical arterial streets. It will be in effect from 3:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. every night until April 1, 2011. This ban is in effect regardless of snow. Ignoring the Winter Overnight Parking Ban can result in a $150 towing fee, a $50 ticket, and a daily storage fee of $10 that increases over time.
The other pertinent ban that can be activated during a heavy snow at any time of the year is the 2 Inch Snow Ban. This restriction is technically in effect all year round, but realistically only a factor in the winter months. The 2 Inch Snow Ban is not activated often, but does assist in snow removal when more than two inches has been accumulated.
Motorists need to watch for and obey both restrictions.
