Calendar Parking Restrictions Take Effect


December 8, 2008 – Calendar Parking Regulations will take effect at 9 am on Tuesday, Dec. 9.

"Based on snowfall last evening and the forecast of cold weather with more snow to come, we must now begin to enforce winter parking restrictions," said James Coady, Manager Parking Authority.

Enforcement applies to Priority Routes, marked by signs in hospital, school zones, transit routes, downtown cores and emergency routes from 2 am until 7 am. Restrictions will also be in effect for streets subject to Calendar Parking restrictions from 9 am until 5 pm. The restrictions are necessary to allow for quick and effective winter road maintenance on main and residential streets.

Under the By-law, the start and end dates of Calendar Parking are based on weather conditions in November and March. Unless waived by the Parking Authority in consultation with the General Manager of Transportation & Works, parking restrictions will be enforced throughout the winter months until March 31.

Motorists are asked to take special care to follow calendar parking signs and priority route
restriction signs to keep the roads clear for plowing when it snows and to avoid fines.
