Winter On-Street Parking Ban
is expected to come into effect on
Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013
Regardless of weather conditions, expect a parking ticking in the morning if you park on the street in St. John's this Winter... Except for downtown, they can park on the street even during the worst of storms, impeding snow clearing at the moment it falls, and then all residents have to wait for days, if not weeks, for the streets downtown to be properly cleared... What's your thoughts? Is this really necessary especially when there is no snow to be found!
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. 9, 2012 and will remain in effect until further notice.
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. (based on 2012 rates)
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 $141.25)
Impounding Fee: $3 per day (based on 2012 rates)
