Snow emergency parking

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.
