Winter On-Street Parking Ban Start Date
see source, the City of St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador
Motorists in the City of St. John’s are advised that the On-Street Parking Ban for streets outside the designated “Downtown” area will come into effect on 12:30 a.m., Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011 and will remain in effect until further notice.
Residents should take notice of this parking ban, as 300 motorists were nailed last year and as a result, each received a $45.00 ticket.
The hours during which on-street parking is prohibited are 12:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. daily. Tickets will be issued to vehicles parked in violation of the On-Street Parking Ban continuously throughout the winter season, regardless of weather or street conditions. This action is necessary to avoid interference with snow clearing operations in the event of an unexpected snow storm or drifting condition. The fine for violators is $45.
Motorists are reminded that vehicles impeding snow clearing operations at any time during scheduled removals or during regular snow clearing operations are subject to towing and impounding.
Towing Charge: At contracted cost (currently $113)
Impounding Fee: $3 per day
