As we discussed in a blog last week, one of Rochester's Winter Rules is do not park overnight downtown when a snow clearing night has been announced. And that's tonight.

But, it's not EVERY street and avenue. Here's the info from the city...

City crews will be removing snow on Monday night into Tuesday morning and again on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning from the downtown area streets. The following streets will be posted by 1/28/19 at 11:00am for scheduled snow plowing between the hours of 12 AM and 8 AM on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 and Wednesday, January 30, 2019

If you leave your car on the street, they'll ticket it...and they'll tow it. Not everyone's been towed, but, honestly, digging your car out from the massive amount of snow the plow will pile around your car will make you wish you could just pay all the fees and get your car back.

If your car is gone tomorrow morning, call the law enforcement center.
