Omaha police have towed 188 illegally parked vehicles from city streets in an effort to clear streets for snow removal.

In a news release issued Tuesday, the Omaha Police Department says it recently conducted a citywide sweep of unlawfully parked vehicles for towing, with each of the four police precincts participating.

The department says dead-storage vehicles violating local storage laws were tagged for removal, and towed after 48 hours if they were still in violation. Unregistered vehicles were towed immediately.

Officers tagged more than 430 vehicles, issued tickets for more than 200 violations and towed 188 vehicles.

The National Weather Service reports there is a chance of snow in Omaha on Saturday.
