When Winter Weather Hits, Keep Parked Cars off Your Street

As a friendly reminder, when it snows, please remember to keep parked cars off residential streets to leave room for salters and plows to clear the way for emergency vehicles and residents.

Parked cars can block the way for equipment, which slows down snow clearing. Ideally, parked vehicles should stay off the street until clearing is complete – from 24 to 36 hours after snowfall ends, depending on the amount of snow accumulated.

To help keep parked cars off streets during snow clearing, the City also cancels temporary parking permits until snow clearing is done. On-street parking is not allowed from 2 to 6 a.m. at any time of the year. Vehicles parked illegally may be ticketed or towed.

To keep up-to-date on winter parking, please check the following:

  • Find out if temporary parking permits are cancelled by calling 3-1-1 (905-615-4311 if outside City limits) or follow @MississaugaSnow on Twitter.
  • Follow salters and plows as they move throughout the city with the online Snow Plow Tracker: mississauga.ca/snow.
