Evanston’s winter parking regulations take effect today and will continue to be enforced through March 31.

The rules ban parking from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. on major streets whenever there’s 2 inches or more of snowfall.

The streets affected are posted with red, white and blue snow route signs, and a map of the snow route strees is available online.

The city will sound emergency sirens at 8:15 p.m. on nights when the parking ban will be in effect, and residents can also call the snow hotline for updates at 847-866-2917.

The fine for violating the snow route parking ban is $50 plus the cost of towing and storage.

When there’s 4 inches or more of snow, the city may also declare a snow emergency banning daytime parking on side streets where parking is normally permitted on both sides of the street.

The ban affects the even-numbered side of streets on even-numbered days and the odd-numbered side on odd-numbered days.

Emergency sirens will be sounded at 7:15 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on snow emergency days.

Violations of the snow emergency parking ban are $35 if the car is just ticketed, $100 if it’s towed and then returned to the area where it was originally parked.
