  • Just sayin'

    That’s the wrong sign for snow emergency routes in St. Paul. Our sign actually says “NIGHT PLOW ROUTE”. Snow Emergency Route signs are used in Minneapolis.

    They never tow anyway so what’s the point? They just go around all the cars on my block.

    Hey “T” Eventually some day you will get towed and u’ll regret it. Either that or you get smashed by a snow plow because ur car is submerged in snow. It’s a lucky-lose situation my brotha.

    • Follow the rules, or deal with the fines.

      I agree with T. Rules are rules. I got towed once this winter…all my fault. No one else to blame but myself. It’s called responsibilities. You live in MN and cities make it pretty clear when snow emergencies are declared. That’s a perk of living in MN–snow.

    When I lived in St Paul they never towed. And they never even came close to the curb,when they plowed. 5 feet one one side & 6 feet on the other side.
