Sec. 24-203. Declaration of emergency condition and parking prohibition--Emergency routes.

 

Whenever the mayor, or his or her designated representative, shall find, on the basis of falling snow, sleet, or freezing rain, or on the basis of an official forecast, by the U.S. Weather Bureau, of snow, sleet, or freezing rain, or that other weather conditions, such as tornado or violent electrical storms, will make it necessary that motor vehicle traffic be expedited and that parking on city emergency routes be prohibited or restricted for snow plowing and/or other purposes, the mayor or his or her designated representative may place into effect a parking prohibition on all emergency routes, by declaring that an emergency condition exists. In such declaration of emergency conditions, the mayor or his or her designated representative shall state the time so designated it shall be unlawful to park or allow to remain parked any motor vehicle on emergency routes. Once in effect, such parking prohibition imposed shall remain in effect until terminated by declaration of the mayor or his or her designated representative; provided, however, nothing in this section shall be construed to permit parking at any time or place where it is forbidden by any other provision of law.
