A snow emergency was in effect last Friday from 9:30 a.m. until Wednesday 6:30 p.m. During a snow emergency, cars parked along snow emergency routes will be ticketed and towed. Once the snow emergency ended Wednesday evening, 5,479 vehicles were issued tickets for parking in the snow emergency routes, says DPW spokeswoman Linda Grant. Also, 690 vehicles were towed during the same time period, Grant says. Here’s a breakdown of the financial side of what a driver would have to play in fines. Drivers face a $250 fine, a $100 towing fee and a $20 impound fee for violating the emergency declaration.
