CHICAGO — The deep snow on the side streets is causing problems for police and emergency workers in Chicago.

It wasn’t until late Monday morning that snow plows were released from the main streets to work on the smaller, side streets. Some police supervisors have told patrol officers to avoid traveling the side streets altogether. At times, the officers parked at intersections and walked to calls that were in the middle of blocks.

And just like regular cars, ambulances also got stuck. Chicago firefighters have also been pitching in by giving emergency vehicles a push or  helping with shoveling.
