Flagstaff police step up tows of plow-blockers

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — Flagstaff police are cracking down on drivers who park
on the streets and block snowplows during storms.

Nearly three dozen people had their vehicles towed during the weekend’s
snow storm at the request of frustrated city snowplow drivers attempting to keep
the streets clear.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported at least 34 vehicles were
towed after police tried to call drivers in the early morning hours to move
their cars out of the way.

Police spokesman Sgt. James Jackson said the city has a winter parking
ordinance that bans street parking between midnight and 7 a.m. in most areas and
from 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. in the downtown area.

It is in force between Nov. 1 and April 1.
