D.C. snow emergency in effect at 7 a.m. Saturday
D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty has declared a snow emergency as of 7 a.m. Saturday, and that has some specific consequences for people who live or travel in the District.
-- When the emergency begins, all vehicles must be moved immediately from snow emergency routes. Use this link to see a list of the routes. See a map here.
-- The routes are posted with red and white snow emergency route signs. Parking is banned on these routes to allow unimpeded curb-to-curb salting or plowing.
-- Illegally parked vehicles are subject to a $250 fine and additional fees for towing and storage at an impoundment lot. The Department of Public Works will no longer relocate vehicles in the neighborhoods.
-- To locate a towed vehicle, call 202-727-5000. The Mayor's Citywide Call Center at 311 can tell you if a snow emergency has been lifted, but we'll also let you know here.
