So when do cars need to moved? I live on Easton Rd.

I just spoke to Thomas McAneney and he said the declaration is in effect now, and police will start enforcing the parking restrictions "as soon as the first snowflake falls."

Thank you very much! I did see this as soon as you answered, I just was unable to respond at that time.
