Subject: Teaneck Snow Emergency Parking Rules

So Monday morning's storm didn't amount to more than a dusting. But with winter officially starting this morning, a real snow storm can't be that far away. In order to allow the snow plows to properly clear the roads, Teaneck prohibits on-street parking (except in designated areas) during a snow fall that requires plowing and until the streets have been cleared. Keep this in mind if you will be travelling, as your vehicle can be ticketed or towed if it's on the street during a snowfall in your absence.

Parking on all streets, except as expressly posted, is prohibited whenever snow is falling and the accumulation is such that it covers the public streets in the Township and plowing is required. Here are the specific rules and other information:

Parking is prohibited until the Township has sufficiently plowed all Township streets and to the extent that parking will not interfere with the normal flow of traffic and snow removal.

See for a list of the streets/areas which are exempt from the restriction.  However, please note that even if a street/area is exempt from the "emergency no parking during snow" restriction, any other existing parking restrictions are still in effect, including enforcement of all State laws.

Hourly limits, and fees, in municipal parking limits will be waived six hours before a snowfall is predicted until 24 hours after the snow has ceased to fall. For a list of the municipal parking lots click on and scroll down for the nineteen off-street parking locations.

Plan early by finding alternate locations for their vehicles as soon as snow is predicted to fall as this on-street parking restriction is vigorously enforced by the issuance of ticket and possible towing of vehicles.

If residents are unable to remove their vehicle from the street or have any questions as to whether or not the DPW is plowing during a snow event please immediately contact the Teaneck Police Department at 201-837-2600.

If you have any concerns about snow plowing during a snow event, please contact the DPW at 201-837-4842 during regular business hours. During all other hours, including holidays, please contact the Teaneck Police Department at 201-837-2600.
