The season of Snow Emergencies has started! After 9:00 PM on days like tonight, where several inches of snow have fallen, St. Paul officials are sticklers when it comes to clearing the roads quickly. This tends to result in hundreds of vehicles being towed to the impound lot and it costs nearly $300 to get your car back. In these rough economic times, that money could be used for other things.
If you’re a Saint Paul resident and you’ve been expecting a phone call to let you know that you need to move your car, it’s never going to come. St. Paul has canceled the Code Red automated system that would call residents to notify them of snow emergencies.

Other communities throughout the Twin Cities metro area, like Minneapolis, have different rules for parking in snow emergencies. Most restrict or prohibit evening and overnight parking on the street after large amounts of snow have fallen so that plows can clear the streets. Check your specific city’s website to find out if street parking rules apply to you.
