Authorities in Washington D.C. issued more than $1.5 million in tickets for illegal parking during the aftermath of the blizzard that pummeled the region with two feet of snow, according to a report.
Nearly 5,500 cars along snow emergency routes received parking tickets at a cost of $250 each, USA Today reported. Nearly 700 cars were towed.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser had previously warned city residents not to park their vehicles more than 12 inches from the curb. The city saw more than 29 inches of snow from the weekend storm.
