Bowser Voids Snow Emergency Tickets From Last Friday

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser says she’s voiding all snow emergency route tickets issued last Friday.  Bowser says that although drivers were told not to park on those routes last Thursday, she understands that some who received citations may not have known about the parking restriction or were perhaps running storm preparation errands.  A total of 28-hundred tickets carrying 250-dollar fines were handed out last Friday.  Although towing and storage fees will still apply, unpaid citations will be voided and those who have paid the fine will receive refunds.
