Omaha city leaders frustrated by lack of parking ban compliance

(Omaha, NE) -- Omaha city leaders say they are disappointed that many residents are not complying with the city's odd-even snow emergency parking plan.

The city says 48-hours into the emergency, they are seeing cars that have not been moved at all or neighborhoods where vehicles are parked on both sides of the street making the job of clearing residential streets more difficult.

Omaha City Engineer Todd Pfitzer tells WOWT 6 News, “We do issue citations, we do very little towing. The only towing we do is if there’s a safety concern somebody parked so close to an intersection you can’t see around them and you’re worried about an accident happening something along that line."

“I hope our system is easy to follow on an odd day you park on the odd side of the street on an even day you park on the even side of the street and of course you’re on the east-west then you park north-south same concept,” said Pfitzer.

Pfitzer says more people will be out issuing 50-dollar citations for violations of the city’s snow emergency.
