ALBANY, N.Y. - According to the Albany Mayor's office, the City of Albany has not declared a snow emergency since January 2011, so many people may be out of practice with the odd and even parking. But even with reminders posted throughout the city, some streets still remain a mess.
"When the snowplows come through and push the snow in against your car, it's really tough to dig it out," says Lucy Beer, who has lived in Albany for 15 years.
Albany police say while a snow emergency can be inconvenient, it is important for people to cooperate so emergency vehicles can make it through the streets.
The snow emergency declared for the City of Albany started at 8:00 p.m. Thursday. During the first 24 hours of the snow emergency all vehicles must be parked on the even numbered side of the street. Beginning at 8 p.m. Friday, December 28th all vehicles must be parked on the odd numbered side of the street for the next 24-hour period.
The City has made available additional parking located at various lots in the city the locations are as follows:
