With the snow storm today, it's either remember the City's Snow Alert rules. Or risk getting stuck.
Good samaritan Adam Corria helped pull a woman to safety today, after getting stuck in an intersection.
"I just do it because my wife's been stuck before and I've been stuck before and nobody stopped to help. So I know what it's like," said Corria.
Sioux Falls is broken down into three different zones, to help residents know when plows will be in their area.
Zone 1 is most of the Downtown area, west of Minnesota Avenue. No vehicles are allowed to park on the streets downtown from 1:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Crews will begin plowing east and west in Zone 2 tonight at 8:00. This includes west of Minnesota to Western Avenue and areas east of downtown to Cliff.
Tomorrow morning the plows will switch gears and cover the north and south routes in Zone 2 starting at 8:00 a.m. This includes everything north of downtown to Russell Street and south to 3rd Street.
The last area, Zone 3, covers the remainder of the city. Plowing began in these areas this morning. Any cars in this area must be off the streets until they have been cleared.
Street crews began working on Emergency Routes this morning. Anyone parked in these areas could get an immediate ticket and towed. Tickets are $35, plus the cost of towing is left for the car owner to pay.
These Emergency Routes should be clearly marked with street signs.
City officials also want to remind everyone that it is the homeowner's responsibility to scoop the snow off the sidewalk within 48 hours of snow fall. So, you have about 24 hours before you could get a $100 fine.
You can see a map of the Snow Alert Zones on the city of Sioux Falls' website.
