MoCo declares snow emergency

By Terri Rupar

Montgomery County has declared a snow emergency and is asking people to stay off the roads "unless absolutely necessary."

Vehicles parked in snow emergency routes will be towed, and any on the road must have all-weather or snow tires or chains. Taxis can charge $1 extra for each trip.

The county said snow-removal crews are concentrating on major roads, particularly ones that access hospitals. You can do that.

To find a towed abandoned vehicle in Montgomery County, call 301-279-8000.

I'm watching the MoCo channel on Fios and see plenty moving.

The real story is the GW Parkway, WaPo. Why aren't you doing something on this one?

Folks have been stuck in the same spot for over 11 hours. NO MOVEMENT NORTHBOUND.

Unlike neighborhoods and even the interstates, there is absolutely NO WHERE to go on that thoroughfare.

Can we please have reliable updates? Perhaps some direct response from Officials? Who is responsible for emergency maintenance of that highway? Why are there no reports of response on that stretch?

Also, I've seen reports of cops TICKETING people who are able to U-Turn to Southbound to get out. Is that even feasible? I hope those motorists sue the municipality to get the commander fired. That's just ridic, if true.
