Move your car

After heavy snowfall during the last days and weeks whole Helsinki has a white cover now. The city is now a winter wonderland.

Except for car drivers. They would rather describe it as hell. And if you happen to be one of them you don’t just have to drive extremely carefully. You also have to watch out for those signs.

They tell when the street is going to be cleaned. For that reason the street has to be completely empty during the announced time. Should you forget to move your car before that then the city will do that for you. And that might not be too cheap. So keep an eye open for new signs when you park during the winter.

  1. And the way they move the cars doesn't always seem to be the car-friendliest way to do it... Related to this you could also write about the bad parking habits during the snowy weeks - those cars are a true problem for trams which obviously can't overtake them.
