Winnipeg’s annual snow route parking ban will begin at 2:00 am on Friday, December 1, 2017, and run until March 1, 2018.
Vehicles parked on snow routes between 2:00 am and 7:00 am seven days a week are subject to a $100 fine and could also be towed.
This year the city says that they will be issuing some tickets through the mail in order to improve efficiency.
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.
Although the snow route parking ban is in effect until March there are a number of other bans that can also be implemented throughout the winter. If the city implements a “Declared Snow Route Ban” parking on snow routes is not permitted between midnight and 7:00 am. A “Residential Parking Ban” means that the city will designate streets as no parking over a 12 hour period during a city-wide cleanup. Each area of the city has been designated a zone so when a residential parking ban is in place it is up to you to “Know your Zone” and the zone of where else in the city you might travel.
Under a “Snow Emergency” parking ban parking on snow routes is prohibited until further notice 24 hours a day.
