If you don't heed those signs it could cost you big bucks.
Chicago's winter overnight parking ban on select arterial streets went into effect on Dec. 1. Ignoring the warning results in a $60 ticket, towing fee of at least $150 and a $10 a day storage fee.
The restricted streets are marked with those familiar red and blue snowflake printed signs and are primarily the more traveled roadways in town. A map attached to this post details all of the roadways included in the restriction.
Cars are not allowed to park on those streets between Dec. 1 and April 1 from 3 a.m. and 7 a.m., regardless of the amount of snow on the ground.
In the 19th Ward the main street included is 103rd Street.
NBC-Chicago reports that in the first night of the winter restriction over 300 illegally parked cars were towed.
How does your block handle winter parking? Do you have lawn chairs ready to claim your spot?
