Parking Ban Begins December 1 by Rey Colon: 35th Ward Alderman, Chicago :: Posted on Sunday, December 09, 2012.

No other City in the world has a better snow fighting operation than the City of Chicago's Department of Streets and Sanitation. While most of us sleep, this military-like operation works hard to ensure that winter storms can't stop the 'City that Works

EXTENDED ENTRY: Overnight Winter Parking Ban

The Overnight Winter Parking Ban begins Saturday, December 1, 2012, through Monday, April 1, 2013, from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m., regardless of snow. To avoid getting caught in the ticket and tow crossfire, please remember that before you park for the night, check for permanently posted Overnight Winter Parking Ban signs. Don't let your vehicle become a POW. City's arterial streets will become restricted overnight Snow Routes.

2-inch Parking Restriction

During a heavy snow the City may enforce the 2-inch parking restriction. To avoid the torture of getting ticketed or having your vehicle relocated, don't park on designated 'Snow Routes' when it snows this winter. Know your enemy, there are 500 miles of city streets designated as 'Snow Routes.'

Owners of towed vehicles can find their vehicle location online or call 311. You will need to know your license plate number, location of vehicle and date towed. Operator will inform caller of the location of the city pound that has the vehicle. If you have questions regarding your towed vehicle, call 311

Be a good intelligence agent and let all your neighbors know about the Overnight Winter Parking Ban and Snow Routes. Make this Chicago winter more peaceful and affordable by parking legally and getting home safely.
