Communities across Metro Detroit are starting to issue snow emergencies.

Snow emergencies are generally declared when a certain amount of snow is predicted within a short period of time or when weather conditions will make the roads hazardous.

In most cases, vehicles left on the street need to be removed from the roads when a snow emergency is declared or the vehicle owner will be ticketed. The cost of the ticket varies between cities and more information can be found on your city’s website.
