While New York is currently experiencing warmer than normal temperatures, no one is thinking about snow, or are they? There are towns, villages and municipalities in the Hudson Valley that do have their minds on snow. More specifically, when and where you can park because of winter snow.

Reminder to everyone, know your winter parking restrictions not just for you, but for also the people that visit your home, your guests. Even with no snow, or no snow on a particular day, these municipalities can ticket you for parking on a road during the winter parking restrictions.

Sadly, yes you can be ticketed if you are parked there and there is no snow on the ground or in the forecast. If you park there and there is snow or a snowstorm, you can get ticketed and towed. Be aware of what your town or municipality has set as their winter parking restrictions to save yourself some hassles, and some money.
