Snow emergency parking

We don't allow parking on major roads and arteries in Boston during declared snow emergencies.

We will ticket and tow your car if you park on a posted snow emergency artery during a declared snow emergency. If you can't find a spot, some lots and garages offer discounted parking to vehicles with Boston resident parking stickers.
