SNOW ORDINANCE: Hundreds Get Ticketed

Des Moines police say hundreds of residents forgot about the city’s new snow ordinance.

This weekend’s storm marked one of the few times police issued tickets to car owners that illegally parked on the wrong side of the street during a storm.

More than 500 tickets were issued at $35 apiece.

The city wants the streets empty so larger plows can clear the snow more quickly and efficiently.

    They should have been ticketed! The downtown streets were horrible Sunday afternoon and there wasn’t even any traffic, just parked cars everywhere.
