District will lift snow emergency Saturday evening

By Washington Post editors

UPDATE -- 6:30 p.m. The D.C. Department of Transportation has announced the city will lift its snow emergency, Saturday at 5 p.m.

Until the snow emergency is lifted residents and visitors are not able to park on snow-emergency routes.

The city's snow-emergency routes are posted with red and white signs. Cars parked on these routes during the emergency will receive a $250 fine and will be towed to a storage impound lot.

Luckily for scofflaws, this snow emergency hasn't been widely enforced since Friday at best. I crawled up Georgia Ave Friday evening and saw thousands of cars parked along the sides and zero tickets issued and no tow trucks working. It seems conditions were similar all over the city. Another score for DC gov!
