Overnight Parking Ban
City tow trucks were out in force overnight, for the first night of the city’s winter parking ban. On 107 miles of arterial streets in Chicago, parking is banned from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m., regardless of the weather, between Dec. 1 and April 1.
The city’s annual winter overnight parking ban begins at 3 a.m. Monday, according to a statement from the city Department of Streets and Sanitation. Regardless of snow, the ban will be enforced along 107 miles of arterial streets from Dec. 1, 2014 through March 31, 2015 from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m.
Hundreds of drivers got an expensive lesson on parking in Chicago on Saturday, after their cars were towed for violating the city’s overnight winter parking ban.
Tow trucks were busy on the city’s major streets again overnight, as 119 vehicles were towed on the second morning of the seasonal overnight parking ban.
If you live along one of the thoroughfares that is subject to Chicago’s wintertime overnight parking ban, make sure the car is off the street when you go to sleep.
Come Wednesday, you’ll have to watch where you park for the night, or you might end up missing work for an unpleasant trip to the auto pound.
