Baltimore Mayor Says Only Emergency Vehicles Allowed On Roadways

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake announced Phase III of Baltimore’s Snow Emergency, which is now in effect until 6 a.m. Sunday.

That means no one without an emergency vehicle permit should be driving on the roads.

“The Phase III designation means that ONLY authorized emergency vehicles are permitted on Baltimore City roadways.  This includes police, fire, ambulance, snow plows and BGE emergency response vehicles. All hospitals should keep all staff in place for the duration of Phase III,” a statement from the Mayor’s office said.

A breakdown of the phases of the snow emergency plan can be found here.
