NEW BEDFORD - New Bedford's parking ban has been lifted as of noon Friday.

The parking ban was in effect for 30 hours, giving City crews enough time to pre-treat and plow the roads before, during, and after Thursday's storm.

During that time, however, New Bedford Police say a total of 40 cars and three ATVs were towed for violating the ban, with 516 tickets issued.

Police say though there were quite a few violations, there was a better compliance rate than the previous major snow storm.
