Winter overnight parking bylaw in effect as of Dec. 1

No parking on the street overnight until spring to allow for snow removal

Well it’s that time of year again — the city’s overnight parking bylaw takes effect Dec. 1 and lasts until March 31, 2022.

“During this time, parking is not permitted on any roadway, highway, laneway or side street within the city, between midnight and 7 a.m.,” the city stated in a news release.

The parking restriction aims to make it easier for city crews to clear snow from roads and lanes. The city said the bylaw “will be strictly enforced, seven days a week.” 

“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.”

The bylaw does have an exception for the holiday season. That exemption is in place to permit on-street overnight parking on Dec. 25 and Dec. 26, as well as Jan. 1.
