Residents may now park their cars back in the street.


The city of Dearborn has declared a snow emergency, effective at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

The city's emergency warning sirens will sound at to alert residents of the emergency. City-wide plowing of streets will begin as early as 4 a.m. Thursday.

Parked vehicles must be off the streets to allow for efficient and safe snowplowing. Sidewalks should not be blocked. Tickets will be issued to owners of parked vehicles left on the streets. No warnings are issued.

Southeast Michigan was blanketed with several inches of snow on Wednesday, beginning around noon and continuing throughout the day.

Generally, in Dearborn, residents may park vehicles back on the street once it has been plowed curb to curb and no further heavy snowfall is expected. However, note that crews may return to clear roads again if conditions require it.

Driveway aprons may become blocked during snowplowing operations. City crews cannot go back to clear blocked driveways. Do not pile snow back into the cleared street. Do not pile or discard snow on any public property, street right-of-way, sidewalk, alley or parking lot. Do not discard snow on another person's property without their permission.

They should go off at 9 p.m., when the snow emergency officially starts.

They went off last night, but still there are people parked on the street.

On my street, too. I hope the restriction is enforced. It really causes problems on the street when the plow has to go around these vehicles.
