DC government has declared a snow emergency effective 7:00 AM Monday, March 3, 2014.

Essentially this means vehicles parked on snow emergency routes after the mentioned time will be ticketed with a hefty $250 ticket violation AND it will be towed.

This has prompted car2go to release an email to its customers. It said in part:

...if you choose to drive, please drive safely and remember to take extra care inspecting the vehicle for damage, low tire pressure, etc.

And offers this caution:

Do not park a car2go on a Snow Emergency Route during a snow emergency. Members are responsible for the vehicle if they parked in a restricted area during a snow emergency. However, if the vehicle was parked before a snow emergency was declared, the last user will not be responsible for any tickets related to the snow emergency.

You may continue to park in all other acceptable parking locations, which include all non-rush hour restricted paid/metered parking and Residential Permit Parking in all 8 zones.

During the last snow emergency a few weeks ago DC Government towed a few hundred cars that were parked in snow emergency routes.
