Drivers who normally park their cars on these affected streets should find a legal parking spot on a side street or a private parking lot or garage if necessary in advance of the snowfall.
Even if two inches more of snowfall hits the street during a snowstorm, the 2″ ban does not normally go into effect until the city makes an official announcement. According to Matt Smith, spokesperson for Streets & Sanitation, the 2″ snow ban has not gone into effect for at least the past four winters because Chicago has not faced a major snowstorm in the past few years.
