New Bedford Parking Ban Extended to 6PM Tuesday


In the wake of a Blizzard that dumped 20 inches of snow on New Bedford yesterday, a second offshore storm will bring snow to much of southern New England during the day on Tuesday, February 17, 2015. The heaviest snowfall amounts will be along the south coast of Massachusetts including New Bedford. The forecast calls for 3-7 inches of accumulating snow.

Citywide Snow Emergency Parking Ban Extended Until 6PM Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015
City officials have announced that the Citywide Snow Emergency Parking Ban will be extended until 6PM Tuesday, February 17, 2015. The parking ban will be strictly enforced and will remain in effect for 48-hours thereafter, unless lifted or further extended by City officials. The parking ban is designed to allow City workers to efficiently remove snow from New Bedford roadways to allow public safety vehicles and residents to travel safely.

While the snow emergency parking ban is in effect, parking is permitted on the side of the street that is opposite the fire hydrants. No vehicle should be parked on the same side of the street as a fire hydrant, except on streets that are regularly posted for parking on one side of the street only. In posted areas, residents are to obey the signs as usual.

The citywide parking ban will be double-sided in both the Acushnet Avenue Business District and the Downtown Business District. Downtown parking is available at no charge in the Elm Street and the Zeiterion Parking Garages.

Violations of this parking regulation will be subject to ticketing at $50 per ticket and towing at full cost to the owner of the vehicle towed. The vehicle owner is also responsible for the full cost of storage for any towed vehicle.
