Toronto parking enforcement officers issued fewer tickets in 2013.

The parking enforcement unit wrote an estimated 2,612,810 tickets, down five per cent from 2012’s 2,761,802 tickets. The police chief said in a report to the Toronto Police Services board that the results were in line with projections.

Ninety-two per cent of the tickets were issued by parking enforcement officers, while seven per cent were written by municipal law enforcement officers and the remainder by police officers.

The force said ticket issuance was down because of the extreme weather such as the July 8 flooding and the December ice storm not to mention the numerous heat and cold alerts.

Police issue less and less parking tickets every year. In 2013 they issued less than 1% of the 2.67 million tickets of the parking tickets given to motorists.

“When these types of events impact regular operations, PEOs [parking enforcement officers] must be redeployed to assist with other parking and traffic flow related assignments,” the report stated.

“PEOs focus on hazardous parking situations, the safe and efficient flow of traffic, assistance to the public, and vehicle relocations for clean-up operations, snow removal and tree trimming.”

Police are still waiting for council to change the bylaw for the new 10-minute grace period for pay-and-display parking meters.

“While a final resolution is pending, this has created pressure on enforcement operations due to increased interaction between PEOs and the public which detracts from available patrol time. This operational pressure may be alleviated when a resolution is achieved,” the report said.

In 2013, the parking enforcement unit towed 22,999 vehicles, including 1,967 that were relocated so city crews could salt roads, make way for parade routes and other special events using city roads.
