LA CROSSE, Wis. -

With the start of April tomorrow, La Crosse residents will no longer have to think about which side of the road to park on.

Alternate side parking officially ends April 1 in the city.

The rule is in place from November through the end of March to make it easier for snow plows to clear the roads.

Last year, more than 18,000 alternate side-parking tickets were issued by police.
