More than 1300 cars towed in winter's third snow emergency


Even in March, at least 1,341 drivers haven't gotten used to Minneapolis's snow emergency parking restrictions.

That's how many people lost their cars to the city's tow trucks between Tuesday and Thursday as plows worked to clear nine-plus inches of snow out of the roads.

On Thursday, the third and final day of the snow emergency, another 408 cars parked on the snowy side of the street were hauled away.

Silver lining for all the drivers begging a neighbor for a ride to the impound lot: With any luck, this will be our last snow emergency this season.
