The winter season is now upon us, so this is just a friendly reminder to please keep roads free of vehicles when it snows. Parked vehicles make it challenging to efficiently clear roads for emergency vehicles and transit to travel.
On-Street Parking Restriction
An on-street parking restriction is in effect year round between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. Parked or stopped vehicles in contravention of the City’s Traffic By-law or on-street parking restriction will be issued a penalty notice and will be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner. The operational condition of a vehicle is not an exemption to these requirements.
Suspension of Temporary Parking Requests
Temporary parking requests can be suspended at any time during snow events to allow staff and machinery to safely clear roads. New temporary parking requests will not be issued and current ones will not be recognized for the duration of snow clearing operations. Residents are asked to remove vehicles from City streets in order for crews to complete salting and snow clearing operations within our service standards timelines.
Vehicles that are found on City streets will be enforced in accordance with the City’s Traffic By-law and will be issued a penalty notice and subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner.
To find out if temporary parking requests have been suspended follow @MississaugaSnow or call 311 (905-615-4311 if outside city limits).
The removal of snow may be necessary after a winter storm. This is typically limited to bridge decks, business improvement areas (BIA’s), or emergency situations. In the event snow removal operations may impact an area used for public parking, temporary ‘No Parking’ signs will be installed 24 hours prior to snow removal operations. Vehicles in contravention of the Traffic By-law will be issued a penalty notice and will be subject to towing and storage fees at the expense of the owner.
