Ever since I got my zone 2 parking permit, I have moved my car every week for the street cleaning. One time I returned early and found out so many cars are still parked there when the sign says it would be towed. Now I am wondering if the city cleans the street at all, and if people actually move their cars? I hardly drive, and not having to move during the weekday would really help.

Any people with insights?

I've gotten ticketed for that before. I came home early and didn't realize they were cleaning the streets that day so I went back out and saw a ticket.

They don't ticket during the winter, when the fluid they use to clean the street would freeze to the road (that, and the snow creates a physical impairment). You can safely park on either side of the street with no concern for street sweeping regulations come winter.

However, come spring--typically around late March/early April--DPW will circulate a notice that street sweeping is about to re-commence, and tickets will be issued. Both myself and the Mrs. have been ticketed numerous times for this infraction, so I can indeed attest to the fact that you will get ticketed.

Thanks for the information! So I can just wait for the notice.... would they leave the notice on the car or send to mailbox??

This is a great news! It's rather cold to have to move the car in the winter

14&You has it right. Here's some more info for you:

Weekly Residential Street Sweeping Ends Friday, November 6 - Releases - Department of Public Works

DPW usually posts on their website a notice about ending/resuming the street cleaning so you can check their website if you think you've missed their notices.

woohoo! I know, I have been moving my car every week, no wonder people give me this weird look when I move my car to the other side of the road

Glad I asked the question~

Now, only if the sno doesn't dump on my car. Sigh.
