It seems that more people heeded the call to move cars off Danbury streets during the storm. There were 28 vehicles towed during the storm, most for violating the parking ban that was implemented with the Level 1 snow emergency. Danbury Police responded to 25 car accidents during Wednesday's storm.
Danbury Police had dozens of cars towed during a January blizzard, more than 50 by noon that day, in an effort to have a clear path for snow plows. Danbury eventually upped the snow emergency to a Level 2, with travel not recommended during the height of the storm.
During a storm last January, some 70 cars were towed.
When the City goes to a Level 2 snow emergency, Patriot Garage is opened for free parking. But Mayor Mark Boughton says they can't do it for every storm because there's a cost for staffing.
