Please park your vehicles in your driveways and off the street due to the expected snow storms. It will allow DPW crews to keep roads clear. pic.twitter.com/lghD70BI3t

A number of area communities suspended winter parking rules over the last few weeks because of the lack of snow during the warmest February recorded in Buffalo. Some places, like Depew and the City of Tonawanda, have not suspended their winter parking bans.
