The City of New Bedford will void traffic tickets related to the snow emergency parking ban on Sunday, February 17 and Monday, February 18. Residents will not have to pay any fines for violations of the weekend’s snow ban and can disregard tickets placed on their vehicles.

The announcement of the weekend parking ban was made to local media, who widely reported the ban. The City’s announcement was also posted on City social media pages. However, due to a technical issue, the ban announcement was not posted on the City of New Bedford homepage, www.newbedford-ma.gov. A homepage posting is standard practice as a backstop for providing information to city residents. Residents are encouraged to continue to monitor local media closely as the primary information source during snow emergencies.

Traffic tickets issued due to the snow parking ban – which began at 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 17 and ended at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 18 – will be voided. Any resident who has already paid snow parking ban tickets for this period will receive a refund.
