Don't park on the street at night: Overnight parking bylaw kicks in Dec. 1

Bylaw gives city the right to ticket and tow vehicles that get in the way of snow clearing

Greater Sudbury's winter overnight parking bylaw takes effect on Sunday, Dec. 1.

The Overnight Parking By-law remains effect until March 31. 

During the winter months, parking is not permitted "on any roadway, highway, laneway or side street within the city," between the hours of midnight and 7 a.m. This is to make it easier for city crews to clear snow from the streets.

"The bylaw will be strictly enforced, seven days a week," the city said in a release to media. "Motorists who do not adhere to the overnight parking by-law may be ticketed and the vehicle may be towed if it is impeding snow removal."

An exemption to the bylaw means vehicles can be parked on the road overnight on Dec. 25 and Dec. 26, and Jan. 1 — though residents are asked to be mindful of any snow removal requirements on these nights.
