Clearing Two Feet of Snow in Washington DC

The nation's capital knows all too well how to tap into taxpayers' wallets. And, nowhere was that more evident than during the aftermath of Winter Storm Jonas.

Since the blizzard began last Friday, the District of Columbia has issued $1,078,000 worth of parking tickets. That's right...



The city has slapped motorists with $65,600 in fines, too. More than 600 cars were towed during the city's snow emergency which expired Wednesday.

The tickets were shelled out to vehicles parked in the way of plows that were trying to clear streets from curb to curb. Any cars deemed to be hazards or barriers to snow removal were towed at the owner's expense to the tune of $100 plus a $25-per-day fee until they pick up their cars.

Update: D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is voiding tickets handed out on Jan. 22, the first day of the storm.
