Washington, D.C., has issued more than $1 million in parking tickets since a blizzard pummeled the city over the weekend, with another $65,000 in fines.
Since D.C.'s snow emergency began on Friday, the city has towed 656 cars and issued $1,078,000 worth of parking tickets, NBC Washington reported. The towed vehicles were either parked illegally, in the way of snowplows, or considered road hazards, the local station said.
"Don't park your car illegally, and that includes parking it kind of in the middle of the street next to the snow bank," D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said on Tuesday, according to NBC. She had said that vehicles parked more than 12 inches from the curb are at risk of getting tickets.
