Winter Parking Reminder

Posted On Wednesday November 28, 2018

WELLINGTON COUNTY - This year has seen an early start to the "season of snow" and with it an increased demand to keep our roads clear. A municipal by-law prohibits overnight parking on streets through the winter for this specific reason. OPP would like to remind everyone of some of the parking bylaws that exist in Wellington County.

  • No parking upon a street (or municipal parking) lot between the hours of 2:00am and 6:00am of any day during the months of November, December, January, February and March.
  • No parking in front of (or within 1 metre) of a driveway. Whether it's yours or not.
  • No parking within 3 metres of a fire hydrant.
  • No parking with left wheels to the curb or edge of the street.
  • No parking more than 0.15 metres from the curb or edge of the street.
  • No parking on a street (or municipal parking) for a period longer than 24 consecutive hours.
  • No parking on or over a sidewalk.
  • No parking within 9 metres of an intersection, pedestrian crossover or crosswalk.
  • No parking in a school bus loading zone.
  • No parking on the street for the purpose of repairing, washing or maintenance a vehicle.
