Some drivers made it even harder for crews to plow snow. Between Tuesday night and this morning Fargo Police issued 16 tickets to people who parked in snow routes. That's a $15 fine. A few vehicles were even towed for blocking roadways.

It costs more than $100 to get your vehicle out. Lieutenant Joel Vettel says when you leave your car parked in a snow route, you're only slowing down truck drivers.

Lt. Joel Vettel – Fargo Police: “And really during a snow event like this, it's extremely important for people to understand that we have to have those cars off the streets so we can remove that snow in a timely fashion.”
