Chicago’s winter parking ban begins Wednesday

CHICAGO – Chicago’s winter parking ban takes effect on Wednesday, December 1st.

The parking ban is enforced regardless of snow on 107 miles of main streets throughout the city during the hours of 3 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“The night parking ban is just one of the many protocols that are in place to keep the city safe in the winter each year,” said DSS Commissioner Cole Stallard. “While DSS is focused on its critical winter activities, we ask residents and visitors to be aware of their speed while driving and please follow the set parking restrictions so that critical routes can be fully salted and plowed when it snows.”

Violators of the parking ban will be towed and face a towing fee of a minimum of $ 150, a ticket of $ 60 and a storage fee of $ 25 per person. day. Vehicles that violate the ban will be towed to Pounds 2 (10301 S. Doty Ave.) or 6 (701 N. Sacramento).

The ban is valid until April 1.

Chicago residents can visit chicagoshovels.org or a map of streets affected by the ban and to see the city’s snowplows in real time during a storm. Motorists can also visit chicagoshovels.org or call 311 to find out if their vehicle was towed due to the ban.
