Residents Reminded to Drive Cautiously and Observe Parking Restrictions Ahead of Snowfall

As the first snow storm of this winter season approaches West Michigan, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety would like to provide a couple of reminders:

  • Icy and snowy road conditions can be very dangerous and require slower speeds and increased distance between vehicles, regardless if your vehicle is equipped with four wheel drive.
  • Cautionary driving is especially important during the first snow of the winter season, as motorists are comfortable with driving on favorable road conditions. As a result, police departments across West Michigan respond to an increased number of vehicle accidents during this transition period.

Residents and visitors to the City are also reminded to observe on-street parking restrictions to assist with snow removal on city streets. On-street parking is not permitted between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. unless otherwise posted.
