Mind the Snow Emergency Route

Just heard on Channel 4 News: According to Police Chief Cathy Lanier, DC Police handed out 4,000 parking tickets during the blizzard to cars parked along emergency routes. At $250 a pop, that's ... $1 MILLION.

Perhaps that will replace some of that pitiful $6.2 million they had set aside for plowing.

DC also quickly ticketed cars legally parked but whose owners could not wade through the masses of plowed snow to reach the meters.
