Anybody who ignores the ban risks being fined, or having their vehicles tagged and towed (at the owner’s expense) if a snowplow is unable to clean city streets.

Cambridge’s ban was put into effect until 3 p.m. whereas the others put theirs in effect from midnight Sunday until midnight Monday, with the flexibility to extend or cancel as needed.
