On all other streets, residents should park their cars on the side with even house numbers only (examples 38, 116, 354, etc.), to keep the streets clear for snow plows and emergency vehicles. Residents must also not shovel snow into the street or into storm sewers. Violators are subject to fines. (By municipal ordinance)

Residents are encouraged to observe ‘good neighbor’ tenets while weathering the snowstorm, by abiding by the following laws:
Home and property owners are responsible for clearing snow and ice from all private residential and commercial property, including areas in and around driveways, sidewalks, and walkways. The City of Newark does not provide snow removal services to private property – residential or commercial.
If there is no sidewalk outside of a residence, then snow should be piled on the left side of the driveway (stand facing the residence). If there is a sidewalk in front of the residence, pile snow to the left of the driveway behind the shovel (stand facing the residence). After the street is plowed, the front of the residence should remain clear of obstructions for parking.
