The Syracuse Police Department reminds residents and visitors about parking regulations with the forecasted, upcoming snowstorm

The Syracuse Police Department will be proactively addressing parking violations in the Snow Priority Parking Enforcement Areas.   Parking compliance is an essential factor in ensuring plows can clear roads after a snow event. If plows, City or private, cannot move through a street because of illegally parked cars, the quality, timeliness and the efficiency of snow removal will be negatively impacted.

The City takes the following measures to enforce parking: 

  • Police patrol high priority areas to ticket and, if necessary, tow illegally parked vehicles.
  • Those areas include routes around hospitals and public safety buildings, steep hills, and narrow streets where cars don’t follow even-odd parking rules.

Residents are reminded to:

  • Observe the odd/even parking restrictions on their street to make way for plows
  • Move vehicles from the street whenever possible during a significant snowfall.

The City has identified priority streets for parking enforcement during snow events. These streets were selected using city data, including the percentage of multi-family dwellings, the width of the street, and other elements contributing to increased on-street parking.
