🚨🚨Snow Emergency Parking Ban Issued from 12pm on Sunday, January 23, 2022 until 10am on Monday, January 24, 2022 ❄️❄️☃️

Karrie D. Howard, Director of Public Safety for the City of Cleveland, has declared a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for the city of Cleveland effective at 12 p.m. on Sunday, January 23, 2022 until 10 a.m. on Monday, January 24, 2022. As a result, stopping, standing and parking of vehicles will be restricted and prohibited on City streets with posted red and white signs.

Parking is prohibited on designated Snow Emergency streets, which are identified as necessary for transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health and police protection and other vital facilities of the City. Significant snowfall can cause streets to become congested and impassable.

Vehicles left parked in the roadway prevent snowplows from clearing streets, which can make driving down these streets impossible. Resulting bottlenecks and gridlock can hamper response by emergency vehicles. For this reason, citizens are encouraged to avoid parking vehicles on all city streets to allow snow plows sufficient time to remove snow and ice from the roads. Vehicles in violation are subject to citation and towing.
