In response to recent snow and to facilitate snow clearing, the City of Winnipeg has implemented an Extended Snow Route Parking Ban beginning tonight at 12 a.m.
The ban extends the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban by two hours, prohibiting parking on snow routes between midnight and 7:00 a.m.
Snow routes are a top priority for snow clearing and ice control 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 and ice control of these critical routes.
Vehicles parked in violation of the Extended Snow Route Parking Ban may receive a $100 ticket ($75 if paid early), and may be towed to the towing company’s compound.
The Extended Snow Route Parking Ban will be in place until snow clearing is completed. The city will announce when the ban is lifted.
