Since enacting a snow emergency Friday, the District has handed out tickets totaling more than $1 million in fines for violators of its parking ban. That translates to thousands of pink violation slips slid under windshield wipers, and hundreds of cars towed from city roadways.

As of Wednesday afternoon, D.C. had issued 5,284 snow emergency tickets — each at a cost of $250 — and towed 673 vehicles since the snow emergency went into effect at 9:30 a.m. Friday, according to D.C. Department of Public Works spokeswoman Linda P. Grant. In total, $1,321,000 in fines has been issued, in addition to $67,300 in towing fees at $100 apiece.

DPW does not estimate the total cost of its fines because the tickets can be adjudicated and dismissed, Grant said.

The department’s snow emergency tally doesn’t include the abandoned cars spotted along District roadways in the aftermath of the storm. Grant said this week that 91 cars suffered that fate, adding another $9,100 in towing fees at $100 apiece.

The good news for drivers is some relief is coming; miles of roadway will open up for parking when the District’s snow emergency is lifted at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Snow emergency rules aim to keep main arteries clear so plows can get through. D.C.’s snow emergency route includes oft-traveled lettered and numbered streets, and thoroughfares such as Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York avenues.
