D.C. Tows 132 Cars From Emergency Routes
(Updated at 2:30 p.m.) The snow emergency is over but some D.C. residents are facing big parking tickets.
Mayor Muriel Bowser declared an official end to the D.C. Snow Emergency at 2 p.m., which resumes regular parking rules and taxi fares. But dozens of drivers were ticketed for not moving their cars out of the paths of plows.
D.C. towed 132 vehicles that were illegally parked between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on snow emergency routes, Bowser’s office announced. The tickets cost $350, plus a $20 per day storage fee, as the city warned drivers last night. Snow emergency routes on the Hill include Constitution Avenue, Independence Avenue and H Street.
The city impound lot is closed today because D.C. government is closed. To find your car, you can call 202-541-6083 or visit this website.
