Snow Emergencies are called after significant snowfall and before 6 p.m. on any given day.
During a Snow Emergency, special parking rules go into effect that allow City crews to plow streets and emergency vehicles to travel safely.
Vehicles in violation of these parking rules will be tagged and/or towed to the Minneapolis Impound Lot

New! Parking Rules App
The new Minneapolis Snow Emergency app tells you where you can and can’t park on Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 of a Snow Emergency to help you avoid a ticket and a tow. This app DOES NOT tell you if and when a Snow Emergency has been declared, but it’s easy to find out using the app since it features a quick call button that connects you with the Snow Emergency hotline.
