People looking for a parking spot on the street overnight should make sure they aren't on a snow route.

The annual snow route parking ban takes effect December 1 and runs until March 1. It means people are not allowed to park on streets designated as a snow route from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.

“We are asking motorists to find an alternative place to park during the winter months,” said Ken Allen, Communications Officer with the Public Works Department.

By restricting parking on snow routes, plows are able to efficiently clear the streets without any obstacles.

If you park on a snow route you can be ticketed and towed. The fine is $100 but is reduced to $75 if you pay it within 15 days.

There were 14,991 tickets and 736 warnings issued for vehicles violating the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban from December 1, 2017 to March 1, 2018.

Snow routes are marked with a sign along the street. You can also download the Know Your Zone app and subscribe to email alerts for more information.
