Cars towed in Cedar Falls for snow removal

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Parts of Cedar Falls are more clear of snow, but not everyone is happy about it.

Crews worked Wednesday morning to remove snow piles from the Downtown and College Hill areas.  However, in order to do that, the city enforced it's 48-hour snow emergency route parking ban.

It was the second time this season the city had enforced the ordinance.  Vehicles parked on certain streets more than two days were towed early Wednesday morning at the owner's expense.

People at the towing company say there were things vehicle owners could have done to prevent being towed.

"Bottom line is if you would keep the snow off your vehicle and move it on a somewhat regular basis, this isn't going to happen.  If it does unfortunately we have to tow it.  It comes here and you have to pick it up," L & M Transmission owner Rod Brandhorst said.

Drivers who had their cars towed today paid about $50 to get them out of the impound.  There were about a half-dozen impounded.
