Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown spoke to Don Postles on Wednesday evening following the announcement of a driving ban in the city. The ban took effect at 9 p.m. on Wednesday and is set to end at 7 a.m. on Thursday.
Mayor Byron Brown said Buffalo residents parked on a side street are asked to move their vehicles to a main street and legally park starting at 7 a.m. on Thursday, when the ban ends.
City officials said on-street parking rates will be suspended tomorrow for spots paid for either by meter or by the Buffalo Roam app.
Buffalo City Hall will be closed again Thursday.
Mayor Brown said the state of emergency was issued due to threat of public safety.
