Public Holiday Enforcement
On Christmas Day 2015, Boxing Day 2015 and New Year’s Day 2016 Toronto motorists get a break on the usually strict parking enforcement laws. Payment is not required at on-street parking meters and pay-and-display machines on these statutory holidays. Further, the time sensitive (rush hour) rules for “No Stopping” and “No Parking” during rush hour (ie- 3pm – 7pm Monday to Friday), are not being enforced. Regular enforcement of all parking regulations will be in effect after boxing day and before New Year’s Day and again, starting on January 2, 2016.
In a press release below, Toronto Police Services want the public to be aware of the following:
