Monday’s storm was an expensive one for drivers who failed to heed D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s snow emergency declaration.
According to the D.C. Department of Public Works spokeswoman Linda Grant, officers issued 1, 124 snow emergency tickets and towed and impounded 90 vehicles. An additional 243 vehicles were towed and impounded by private tow companies.
The fine for being parked where you shouldn’t be during a snow emergency? $250. Add in towing fees $100 and storage fees — $20 per day until cars are claimed — and next time, ya might just want to remember to move your car.
