Be a Plow Pal!

Help your neighbors have a great snow season … be a Plow Pal this winter and spread the word about Minneapolis Snow Emergencies.

Taking a few small steps can help your friends, family, and neighbors avoid the cost and hassle of having their cars ticketed and towed this winter. Your efforts will also help make sure Minneapolis streets are plowed from curb to curb.

How you can be a Plow Pal

It’s easy to help spread the word about Minneapolis Snow Emergencies – and help your friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors avoid the cost and headache of having their cars ticketed and towed this year.

Why do we need Plow Pals?

Minneapolis gives folks a host of ways to find out about and follow Snow Emergency parking rules, but we’re always working to expand our list of tools.

For the past two years, the City of Minneapolis has surveyed people who have had their cars towed during Snow Emergencies to find out what other steps may help them avoid tickets and tows in the future. The City heard a number of ideas about how to educate folks about Snow Emergencies and we’ve taken additional steps.

We also learned that it would help if the community spreads the word. For example, a large proportion of people who had their cars towed had moved to their neighborhood within the past year (regardless of how long they have resided in Minneapolis.) By reaching out to help your neighbors learn and follow the parking rules, we can make sure it’s a great snow season.
