WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Feb. 16, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — West Valley City Police Department is reminding everyone that on-street parking is prohibited when there is an inch of snow or ice on the roadway.

With the winter storm expected to dump several inches of snow over the Wasatch Front from Tuesday night into Wednesday, police are asking that all vehicles be kept off the roads so the plows will be able to clear the snow and ice from the pavement.

WVCPD posted another reminder on Facebook, as well:

“In addition, our Parking Compliance team is actively ticketing vehicles illegally parked. To report on-street parking violations, please call 801-963-3313 or email [email protected]

May be an image of text that says 'West Valley City ordinance prohibits street parking when there is a one inch accumulation of snow or ice on the roadway. Vehicles parked on the street make it extremely difficult for snow plows to clear snow and ice from the pavement, especially in cul-de-sacs and on dead-end streets. For updates on current conditions and snow plow progress, call the snow removal hotline at 801-965-7575, public works'
