D.C. issues 1,179 tickets for snow emergency violations

The District's snow emergency was lifted this morning at 9 :30 a.m. However, that's probably no consolation for the unlucky folks who were cited by the D.C. Department of Public Works before then. Post staff writer Michael Ruane reports that the agency says it issued 1,179 tickets for snow emergency violations, each carrying a $250 fine, and towed more than 200 vehicles.

Meanwhile, Mayor Adrian Fenty says the city will be ready when federal workers return to work Tuesday.

The mayor said 330 plow trucks are being deployed for the sixth time in the last few days, but many roads already are in decent shape.

Hmm. $300,000 in snow emergency violations. Should be a nice addition to the snow removal budget for the next storm.
