Vehicles towed off streets as part of Lexington's snow emergency

Some drivers woke up to find their cars missing Tuesday morning in Lexington.

That is because Mayor Jim Newberry issued a level-one snow emergency Monday afternoon.

After the declaration, drivers had until 10 p.m. Monday to move vehicles off streets that are designated snow emergency routes.

Since not everyone did that, police officers worked overnight, trying to identify the drivers of the cars to ask them to move their vehicles.

In cases where they couldn't find the drivers, cars had to be towed to make way for snow plows.

As of 4 a.m. Tuesday, 75 vehicles were towed and 89 citations were issued.

The fine for violating a snow emergency is between $10 and $50 plus towing costs.
