Overnight parking ban begins Sunday

Updated: January 1, 2014 6:12AM

Chicago’s winter ban on overnight parking returns Sunday.

The ban, meant to make it easier to plow and salt snow-covered roads, is in place from Dec. 1 to April 1 between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.

It covers 107 miles of city streets and is in effect regardless of whether there’s any snow.

Ignoring the ban can get you a $60 ticket, plus $150 or more for towing and a $20 fee every day the car is held.

Towed cars are taken to one of two lots — 10301 S. Doty Ave. or 701 N. Sacramento Ave.
