Violators of the ban impede our crews’ ability to do their jobs and inconvenience city residents and visitors," the Clear Lake Police Department said on Facebook Saturday morning.
A tow ban was in effect Saturday morning in many counties. It went into effect around 1 a.m. Saturday and lasted deep into the day.
