No parking on streets overnight starting Dec. 1
November 28, 2018 –
Starting Saturday, Dec. 1, parking is prohibited on all City streets from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. – and from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. on the streets that surround Kingston General Hospital. The overnight winter parking bylaw ensures that vehicles are kept off the streets so that snow plows can effectively respond to winter weather events.
"This bylaw is in place to help with winter maintenance. We can plow the roads much more effectively during the overnight hours when there are no cars parked on Kingston streets, many of which are quite narrow and challenging to plow," says Bill Linnen, acting director, public works services.
Vehicle-owners who disobey the bylaw will receive a fine of up to $30 and vehicles found in contravention of the bylaw are subject to a tow.
The parking prohibition remains in place until the end of March, 2019.
