Pr. George's Exec: Move cars, don't threaten snow plowers
Prince George's County Executive Jack B. Johnson is warning motorists that abandoned and illegally parked cars will be ticketed and towed, and cautioned frustrated residents that if they threaten snow plow drivers, they will have to answer to police.
Officials said Thursday that illegally parked vehicles are hampering plowing efforts.
"It is imperative that we all work together to recover from this record-breaking storm," Johnson said in a statement. "It is important that residents move their cars off streets into driveways or other off-street parking. If you cannot do that, please move your car to the even numbered side of the street so plows can get through your roads."
Johnson said in an interview Thursday that all primary and secondary streets should be passable by midnight and that neighborhoods would be tackled after that. He also said areas that did not get plowed after the first storm would get first priority this time around.
"I know our citizens are getting very restless and they are calling everyone they can reach to find out when a plow will get to their street," Johnson said. "We're asking that you please remain patient and we will have plows into all residential areas within the next 1-2 days. We are experiencing conditions similar to those in more northern and mid-western states and folks have to understand that there will be impacted snow on roadways."
