🌱 120 Cars Towed In Pawtucket Parking Ban + I-95 South Crash

·2 min read

Good morning, people of Pawtucket! Nicole Fallon-Peek here with the latest edition of the Pawtucket Daily.

First, today's weather:

Colder; a.m. snow, up to 1". High: 34 Low: 10.

Here are the top two stories today in Pawtucket:

  1. There were over 120 cars towed and 270 tickets during the first parking ban of 2022. Pawtucket police enforced a parking ban for 20 hours from Jan. 6 through the 7th. The reason for the ban was that a winter storm emergency had been declared, so all cars needed to be off the streets to ensure that the roads could be cleared. (The Valley Breeze)

  2. On Tuesday night, Pawtucket police joined state troopers to respond to an accident on I-95 S. Two vehicles collided causing heavy damage to one another. Traffic continually built up as a fire truck and three ambulances blocked off lanes. The status of the drivers is currently unknown. (ABC 6)
