Day 3 of the emergency ends at 8 p.m.
With just hours left in the second Snow Emergency of the winter season, more than 1,800 vehicles had been towed to clear streets ahead of snowplows, Minneapolis spokesman Matt Laible said.
The third and final day of the snow emergency ends at 8 p.m. today.
Car owners were instructed to park on the even side of non-Snow Emergency Route streets until those streets were fully plowed. Cars may also park on either side of streets marked Snow Emergency Route and on parkways.
