City of Winnipeg is letting the public a friendly reminder about Annual Snow Route parking starting this Friday- Dec 1st!!

City of Winnipeg Public Works

Annual Snow Route Parking Ban begins Friday, December 1

The City's Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will take effect at 2 a.m. on Friday, December 1, 2017. Vehicles may not park on streets designated as snow routes between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m.
The Annual Snow Route Parking Ban is in effect from December 1 to March 1.
Avoid a Ticket and tow
Snow routes are clearly marked with "Snow Route" signs. Citizens are encouraged to check their streets for snow route signs, or if unsure, to contact 311 or use the online 
Address Lookup Tool.

New this year
The Winnipeg Parking Authority will begin exercising their right to issue tickets for parking violations on snow routes via mail in addition to placing them on the windshield of the vehicle. By using a mail-out method, the Winnipeg Parking Authority will be able to cover more area to further support the Public Works Department in their efforts to ensure critical routes are clear of snow and ice.
   
Snow routes are a top priority for snow clearing to ensure that emergency vehicles can navigate quickly and safely around the city. It’s important that vehicles are not parked on snow routes overnight in order to enable rapid and efficient snow clearing of these critical routes.

Vehicles parked in violation of the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban can receive a $100 ticket ($50 if paid early), and may be towed to the towing company’s compound.
