SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Sioux City will begin ticketing car owners who haven’t moved their vehicles since a weekend snowstorm that dumped over 7 inches of snow in the area.

Mayor Bob Scott tells the Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1uWUgUZ ) the remaining cars have made it difficult for city crews to clear some areas. He says it’s hard for workers to maneuver snow plows through cluttered streets.

The western Iowa city has a policy that all streets have to be plowed within 72 hours after a snowfall ends.

Scott says he wishes the city declared a snow emergency during the snowstorm, allowing workers to tow abandoned or snowbound vehicles left on the street without notifying owners.

He says he expects road conditions to improve by Wednesday afternoon.
