Overnight parking and winter snow control

Posted on Friday November 13, 2020

The Town's Traffic Bylaw prohibits overnight parking on all streets from November 15 - March 31, between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. This allows snowplow operators to safely and efficiently remove snow from local roadways.

Remember too, that according to the Highway Traffic Act and the Snow and Ice Removal Bylaw, residents may not deposit snow onto the roadway or sidewalk. When clearing snow, pile it on your property--not onto the sidewalk, road or across the road.

Sidewalks in the Downtown are governed by Town By-law 2189, where merchants are required to clear the sidewalk fronting their businesses.

Snowplow Safety

  • Assume the snowplow operator cannot see you and move to a location away from where the equipment is working
  • Do not allow children to play on, build forts or tunnel in roadside snow banks
  • Never approach a snowplow, even when it has stopped
  • Keep a safe stopping distance between your vehicle and the snowplow
  • Never cut off a snowplow or pass on the right
