Time to move your cars again, folks.

The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure will deploy those chunky trucks to city streets starting today. That means parking restrictions that could leave you with a $50 fine if you don’t move your car will be enforced. The trucks help keep the road free of debris and dirt.

Be sure to look at the red and white signs on your street block to see when you may need to move your car. You can sign up with the city to get reminders. You can also see when cleaning is scheduled to take place along your street or the street you most often use to park.

The sweeping season will run through November. Last year, street sweepers swept 163,385 lane miles in the city, collecting 57,479 cubic yards of dirt and debris, according to the city.
