Columbia Public Works: Move cars from snow routes

Friday, December 13, 2013 | 7:06 p.m. CST

COLUMBIA — Columbia Public Works is requesting that residents move their vehicles from first- and second-priority snow routes Friday evening.

With the forecast calling for 3 to 5 inches of snow to accumulate overnight, Public Works said in a news release, the department encouraged residents to move their cars in case snowfall exceeds 2 inches, the level at which a new city ordinance requires moving vehicles.

Moving vehicles will help clear priority routes for public safety responses and major traffic corridors, the release said.

It's about time they started enforcing this. It'd be nice if people could not park in the bike lanes, either, especially when they have space in their driveways.
