During the declaration of a snow emergency, a person may not park a vehicle on any highway designated as a snow emergency route.

Motorists are reminded that unanticipated hazardous conditions such as isolated snow drifting and icy roadways may still exist even after the Snow Emergency Plan has been lifted, and to continue to use caution when traveling.
