I would like to remind everyone of the winter overnight parking regulations that are now in effect throughout the city. From November 15 to April 1, there is no parking on city streets between 1:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. when 7 cm or more is forecast by Environment Canada in the Ottawa area. This includes any forecast for a range of snow of more than 7 cm (for example, 5 to 10 cm). Vehicles that remain parked on the street during an overnight parking restriction will be ticketed. These restrictions allow snow removal crews clearer access to streets, creating a faster and more efficient process.
City-owned parking garages will be made available during an overnight parking ban. Residents can also sign up to receive an email or Twitter notification of an overnight parking restriction, for more information on this please visit www.ottawa.ca/winterparking, or call 3-1-1.
