KANSAS CITY, Missouri - When heavy snow falls in Kansas City, officials sometimes implement the Snow Ordinance.
The Snow Ordinance has two different phases.
Phase 1 is issued when streets are slickened by snow or freezing rain. Drivers who do not have snow tires or chains on their cars will be ticketed if they get stuck on major thoroughfares.
Phase II of the Snow Ordinance means cars parked on designated snow routes will be ticketed two hours after the phase is implemented.
