Bethlehem Declares Snow Emergency

From the Bethlehem Police Blog: Effective 7:00PM tonight (1/21/14) the City of Bethlehem is declaring a snow emergency. Snow emergency routes have restricted parking on one side of the street that alternates each day. All vehicles parking on snow emergency routes must obey the posted snow emergency signs for that street or their vehicle will be ticketed and the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense. City parking garages are available for free parking for the duration of the snow emergency. The snow emergency is expected to last until sometime tomorrow afternoon. We understand the inconvenience that the limited parking brings but in the interest of public safety, it is necessary to declare the snow emergency. Please move your vehicles off of the emergency routes if at all possible. If you have to park on a snow emergency route, please follow the signs be aware that at 7:00AM the alternate parking goes into effect and you must move your car to the other side of the street to avoid being ticketed and towed.

The more people that voluntarily comply, the fewer vehicles will need to be towed in the bone-chilling cold. Please share this information with friends and neighbors that might not follow social media. Together we can save citizens tow fees and tow operators from frostbite. Thank You.

Nothing like giving people ample warning. Should have been declared this morning already. Where are the cars to now be put since the roads are barely passible! Donchez screws up within a few weeks of being seated!

If you read this news release, you can see there will be free parking in city garages. If that is too far from where you live, I'd suggest you team up with some neighbors.

I'm sure you'll be ok. Perhaps you'd like Donchez to change your didy and tuck you in later, too.

This is a matter of public safety. Don't be such a candy ass.
