Watertown police announced today that the town's annual overnight parking ban will begin at midnight Dec. 2 and carry on until April 1.
During the winter ban, no one can park their car for more than one hour on public streets between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. during all days of the week.
For residents who don't have parking, the town designates certain municipal lots during the winter ban. These lots are free, but can only be used between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Anyone parking at a school lot during a snow storm must move their car by 6 a.m. to allow for plowing. Violators may be towed.
The temporary parking lots include:
• The police station at 552 Main Street
• Any public school parking lot
• Marion Road at Victory Field
• The lot at Boylston and Mt. Auburn streets
Police are also reminding locals that parking on any sidewalk is not allowed.
Anyone who parks overnight faces a ticket and risks having their car towed, police said.
