City crews towed 239 vehicles Sunday on the first day of Chicago's overnight winter parking ban.

That's down from the 301 vehicles towed on the first day last year and up from the 215 towed on Dec. 1 in 2011, according to Molly Poppe, a spokeswoman for the Department of Streets and Sanitation.

The winter parking ban took effect at 3 a.m. Sunday and prohibits parking between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. on 107 miles of city streets between Dec. 1 and April 1.

Violations carry a $60 ticket, and drivers must also pay a towing fee of at least $150 and a $20 daily storage fee.

The city’s website includes maps and lists of streets affected by the ban.
