The city issued a blizzard of parking tickets ... to cars still covered in snow!

Cars still encased in snow and ice got no special treatment.

New York City on Monday issued 9,910 parking tickets— twice the average number — as alternate-side parking regulations went back in effect following a record month of snow.

Those summonses could bring the city as much as $437,000.

On an average day, the city doles out 5,460 tickets. That's about $241,000 in fines.

Alternate-side-of-the street regulations allow the Sanitation Department to clean streets — and remove remaining piles of snow.
