From the Mayor’s office:
“Mayor Muriel Bowser announced today that the snow emergency will be lifted as of 2 pm Tuesday, February 17. By declaring a snow emergency, the District Snow Team (Department of Public Works and Department of Transportation) was able to clear snow emergency routes curb to curb. Additionally, the DC Taxicab Commission has ended their Snow Emergency Fare to coincide with the end of the Snow Emergency.
As of 11:30 am today, 132 vehicles had been ticketed and towed for violating the snow emergency regulations. To learn where a vehicle has been towed, call the Towed Vehicle Locator office at 202.541.6083 or go to http://dpw.dc.gov/service/locate-towed-vehicle.
Vehicles ticketed for a snow emergency violation and towed by DPW were taken to the DPW Impound Lot at 5001 Shepherd Parkway, SW 20032. The lot will be open Wednesday, February 18 between 8 am and 6 pm and motorists may reclaim their vehicles during those hours. The lot is closed today because DC government is closed. Normal hours of operation are weekdays from 8 am to 6 pm, the telephone number is 202.645.5500. The lot is closed weekends and holidays and when DC government is closed. To have an impounded vehicle released, these fees must be paid:
· $250 ticket for the snow emergency violation.
· $100 tow fee.
· $20 per day storage fee.
Additional fees also may be required to be paid, e.g., fees for tickets older than 60 days that have not been entered into the adjudication system.”
