Chicago’s annual overnight street parking ban starts today, December 1. Whether or not there’s snow, parking is banned from 3 to 7 a.m. from Dec. 1 to March 31 on more than 100 miles of main streets where permanent no-parking signs are posted. Look for these signs.
On some side streets, there’s a separate overnight parking ban in effect when we get at least 2 inches of snow. Look for these signs.
