Yekaterinburg tows nearly 1,000 illegally parked cars

During the week ending February 14, 994 illegally parked cars were towed from the streets of Yekaterinburg as part of the city administration's efforts to alleviate traffic.

A total of 145 tow trucks were called in to remove cars from prohibited parking zones throughout the city, according to Ekburg.ru.

City administrators hope that the mass towings will deter motorists from continuing to park in prohibited zones. Constricted roadways are a leading cause of traffic in Yekaterinburg.
