Winnipeg, MB – In response to recent accumulations of snow and to facilitate snow clearing, an Extended Snow Route Parking Ban will be in effect starting at 12 a.m. on Tuesday, December 22, 2020.
The Extended Snow Route Parking Ban extends the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban by two hours, prohibiting parking on snow routes between midnight and 7 a.m.
Residents are encouraged to check their streets for snow route signs, or if unsure, to search an address on the snow route map, use the online address lookup tool, download the Know Your Zone app, or contact 311.
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 can 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 and the public will be notified when the ban is lifted. At such time, the Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will continue to be in effect from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.
Motorists are reminded to drive to conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near heavy equipment working.
