While you were sleeping, the annual Winter Overnight Parking Ban began early this morning and runs through March 31. Parking on designated arterial streets from 3-7am (regardless of snow) will get your wheels towed ($150 and an additional daily storage fee), plus a $60 ticket. Additionally, a second (but not as strongly enforced) ban that tickets (or relocates) cars parked on designated streets when snowfall is over 2 inches goes into effect today.
Hope your car is where you left it.
