From KCPD: If you got a ticket for parking on an emergency snow route Dec. 28, you can throw it away.
Because of a miscommunication with the city’s Public Works Department, Kansas City Police Department Parking Control officers wrote more than 160 tickets on cars parked along emergency snow routes Friday although Phase Two of the Emergency Snow Ordinance never was issued. The tickets were written all across the city, mostly between 9 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.
During Phase 1 of the city’s Emergency Snow Ordinance, cars without snow tires that get stuck on major thoroughfares will be ticketed. Phase 2 calls for all cars parked on emergency snow routes to move in order to accommodate snow removal efforts. Phase 2 was not enacted during Dec. 28’s snow.
Therefore, tickets issued for violating the Emergency Snow Ordinance that day are invalid. If you have not already paid the ticket, discard it. If you have paid it, the Kansas City Municipal Court will mail you a reimbursement.
