As Montgomery County Digs Out, Snow Emergency Remains In Effect

Play associated audio

A snow emergency remains in effect in Montgomery County this morning.

During an emergency, vehicles can not be parked along roads deemed "snow emergency routes," which means most major roads in the county. Large white signs are posted along the roads in question. Any vehicle parked on one of them can be ticketed and then towed.

To make up for the lack of parking, county-owned garages will be free again today. Street parking meters will still be enforced.

Montgomery County has used 600 pieces of snow removal equipment in response to this storm, which officials say is the most in county history.
