With cold weather and maybe some snow expected to hit Chicago this week (In fact, one story said "bone chilling cold" is expected.), it's a good reminder about the city's Overnight Winter and Snow Parking Bans.
Chicago's Overnight Winter Parking Ban took effect at 3 a.m. on December 1. This means that parking on certain major routes in the city can't be parked from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. on during the winter months so the city can plow them when we have a snow storm.
As the City of Chicago says: "Streets and Sanitation officials warn motorists the ban means anyone parked on key arterial streets will be ticketed and towed between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m." This ban is regardless of snow and will last until April 1, 2012
