No parking on streets overnight starting Dec 1

November 24, 2014 -

Starting Monday, Dec. 1, parking is prohibited on all City streets from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m.  The overnight winter parking bylaw ensures that cars are kept off the streets so that snow plows can effectively respond to winter weather events.

"Vehicles parked on the street get in the way of plowing and other overnight winter control efforts. This winter parking bylaw helps the City ensure that private vehicles and buses have safer roads to ride on during the winter months," says Kim Leonard, Manager Licensing and Enforcement.

Car owners who contravene the bylaw, risk receiving a fine of up to $40, or possibly having their vehicle towed.

The parking prohibition remains in place until the end of March, 2015.
