CHICAGO -- Watch out for where you park in Chicago. The city's overnight parking ban is now in effect.
The ban went into effect on Tuesday at 3 a.m. It will be in place every day between now and March 31st from 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. The ban impacts more than 100 miles of main streets.
Many drivers have already had their vehicles towed overnight.
Violators will have to pay a big fine. There's a $150 towing fee, a $60 ticket, and storage fees of $20 a day.
The city says keeping the streets free of parked car helps snow plows to do their job during snow storms.
