Many Kenai residents awoke Friday to find stickers on their vehicles, which had been parked illegally overnight.
From Oct. 1 to the end of April, vehicles are prohibited from being parked on city streets between the hours of 4 and 8 a.m., according to Kenai Police Chief Chuck Kopp.
The prohibition is designed to allow snow removal from the streets.
Kopp said the early warning is just a wake-up call reminding residents of winter parking rules.
In Soldotna, police Sgt. Todd McGillivray said generally the same municipal ordinance exists.
"Pretty much people can't park on city streets during winter," he said.
Once the snow flies, vehicles will be towed and impounded in Kenai, Kopp said.
