Heads up: the dreaded Moncton overnight winter parking ban is here.
“In accordance with the City of Moncton By-law T-310, it is not permitted to park a vehicle on any Moncton street from December 1 to April 15 between 12am and 7am.
This measure is necessary in order to allow for efficient and safe snow removal and ice control operations.
Non-compliant vehicle owners are subject to a fine and their vehicle could be towed at their expense. The City would like to thank its citizens for their understanding and continued support in making our streets safer through the winter season.”
“In addition, the Downtown Overnight Parking Pilot Project will be back for a second year. When conditions warrant, overnight parking restrictions will be lifted in the downtown area encompassing King Street to Vaughan Harvey Boulevard (east to west) and St. George Street to Assomption Boulevard (north to south).
Regular overnight parking restrictions in this section of downtown will be enforced unless noted otherwise. Motorists will be responsible for verifying if the overnight parking restrictions have been lifted. Go to moncton.ca and find the “Overnight Parking” icon on our homepage to verify if the overnight parking restrictions have been lifted for a particular night.
The decision to lift the restrictions will be based on the following factors:
- planned snow clearing activities
- forecasted weather
This measure is done on an annual basis to allow for adequate and safe snow clearing and ice control operations.“
