More Than 600 Cars Towed During Boston's Parking Ban

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The latest nor'easter is behind us, and the cleanup continues.

The parking ban and snow emergency were lifted Wednesday evening in Boston.

Commissioner of Transportation Gina Fiandaca told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Ben Parker that, overall, the city was pretty pleased with compliance during the snow emergency--even though there were plenty who didn't comply.

"The Transportation Department issued just under 3,000 weather emergency tickets, and we towed 129 cars," she said. "The Boston Police Department issued a little over a thousand weather emergency tickets and they towed about 559 cars."

Fiandaca said that, overall, the city's been able to get most of the streets taken care of.

"Certainly, having the parking ban in effect yesterday helped so that plows could get out there and do a lot of cleanup and take advantage of that time," she said. "Having some sunny, dry weather certainly helps. Overall, I think that the city's in great shape."
