Changes to overnight parking rules starting Dec. 1
Winter weather is here to stay and that means many cities are changing the rules when it comes to overnight parking.
These are general guidelines for drivers and do not apply during a snow event.
When those bans are issued no overnight street parking is permitted and vehicles may be towed and/or ticketed at the owner's expense.
