417 cars towed on last day of snow emergency

Despite so many explicit warnings to mind the snow emergency rules, it looks like hundreds still didn't get the message before yesterday morning.

The city tells us that 417 more cars were towed in Minneapolis Monday, the final day of the season's first snow emergency. That brings the three-day total to 1,489, according to Minneapolis spokesman Matt Laible.

Here's the day-by-day breakdown:

Day 1: 400

Day 2: 672

Day 3: 417

(Note: These numbers are a little different than what the city reported to us yesterday. Liable explains that these are more precise.)

For all of those who became part of the above statistic this weekend, you have our condolences. You'll surely have plenty more chances to get it right in months ahead.
