If your car is on the street in Rockville Centre, move it as quickly and safely as you can.

DPW is getting into the next phase of plowing efforts but are being held back by cars still parked on RVC streets, according to RVCPD Commissioner Charles Gennario.

"Unfortunately many people did not heed the snow emergency and left vehicles on the street which hampered plowing operations," said Gennario. "We have been ticketing them."

RVC car owners also should not begin parking on streets just because the sun is out.

"Residents should keep their vehicles off the streets until the plows are done with widening operations," he said. "It is not legal to park on the streets during a snow emergency, which is still in effect."

While cars stuck on the street have been holding up plows, Gennario said the Village was well prepared for the storm. While he reported a "heavier than normal" call volume to the department, he said there were no major emergencies.

"Village Departments were extremely cooperative with each other and snow plowing and removal operations were conducted throughout the night and are continuing but from the police Department’s point of view, it has been extremely successful so far," he said.
