MILWAUKEE -- Nearly 2,000 vehicles received parking tickets so far this weekend in Milwaukee during the winter storm.

According to Milwaukee Department of Public Works, 1,901 parking tickets were issued when the city declared an "Overnight Snow Clearing Operation" Saturday morning -- which includes special parking restrictions.

Those special requirements require residents to move their vehicles on Sunday, January 20 by 11:00 p.m. to the EVEN numbered side of the street through Monday morning, January 21. On Saturday, January 19, residents were to move their vehicles to the ODD numbered side of the street by 11:00 p.m. through 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Failure to do this could get you a $40 citation.

The Department of Public Works reminds city residents that the posted street sign takes precedence in all areas of the city. Residents should read the signs on the block/in the neighborhood for winter parking instructions before parking. Not all winter parking rules are posted, residents should also check for parking restrictions at milwaukee.gov/winterregs. Residents can also call (414) 286-CITY (-2489).

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive a Snow Mobile Winter Text Alert message and/or an E-Notify email message which serve to alert them that a DPW operation has been called, and that vehicles must be moved accordingly. To sign up for either or both alerts, go to milwaukee.gov/enotify or call (414) 286-CITY for assistance.
