Here’s Where You Shouldn’t Park During the Snowstorm

For the first time since 2010, the District government will declare a snow emergency Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., Mayor Vince Gray told reporters this morning. That means cars parked on snow emergency routes will be towed and incur heavy fines and fees—$375 minimum.

So where shouldn't you leave your car when the flakes start to fall? This map will show you:

The latest forecasts call for between 4 and 10 inches of snow here in the District and more in the western suburbs. Here's our winter storm anxiety advisory to help prepare for what the weather will bring.

    So in addition to this map, the District website offers this list of snow emergency routes. http://ddot.dc.gov/publication/snow-emergency-routes-list

    On a few of them--mostly roads in Pleasant Plains/Columbia Heights like Harvard, Columbia, Kenyon, and Park NW--it says that the restrictions apply only to one side of the street.

    Does anyone know if this is still accurate? It would be nice not to have to leave work early to move the car, but I don't want it towed! Called DDOT but they told me to look at the street signs, which is a bit hard from my workplace miles away.
