Winter Parking Restrictions In Effect Today in St. Paul

(St. Paul, MN) -- The city of St. Paul is banning parking on the even side of all residential streets starting today, and violators will be ticketed or towed. The city has never taken such action before, but as snowbanks grow larger, the streets are now too narrow for emergency vehicles. Police issued warnings over the weekend when the ban took effect, but stronger action is in store today for those who don't move their cars and trucks.
