The police have encouraged the motorist to be mindful of the signage posted along 107 miles of the main road. John Tully, the commissioner of Chicago Street and Sanitation, said that snow could quickly accumulate during the winter storms, and the crews need immediate access to the affected area. Therefore most vitals roads in the city should be free of obstruction. He also said that the residents could help in keeping the streets clear by checking the posted sign and following the instructions written on the signs. The people who ignore the signs will face towing of the vehicle plus $150 towing fees. The defaulter will also have to pay a $60 ticket and an initial $20 daily storage fees in addition to the entire default fee.
