Frederick, Md. (DG) -The snow emergency plan is in effect for Frederick and Montgomery Counties.

The snow emergency plan went into effect for Montgomery County at 9:30 AM and for Frederick County at 11:30 AM.

Once a snow emergency is declared, the law requires certain precautions.

They include:

  • Prohibited parking on roads and streets designated as snow emergency routes; and
  • The use of snow tires/chains (most cars now use all weather tires, so changing to “snow” tires is unnecessary);

Once an emergency is in effect, all requirements are in effect until lifted.
