Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – Please be advised that the municipal overnight winter parking ban will continue to be enforced from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 27, to facilitate snow and ice removal operations on the streets.
Vehicles must be off municipal streets during the hours noted above. Residents should also be aware that under section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, tickets can be issued and vehicles can be towed any time, day or night, if they are parked in a manner that interferes with snow clearing.
As well, in order to further optimize mobility, visibility and ultimately safety, the municipality is using temporary No Parking signage on select streets in the Halifax region where it is particularly difficult for local traffic, buses and emergency service providers to navigate around parked vehicles. This step is often taken during the winter months and is permitted under Section 151 of the Motor Vehicle Act. Motorists are advised to obey these restrictions or risk being ticketed or towed.
The overnight winter parking ban is in effect from now until March 31. It will be enforced only during declared snow and ice events and snow removal operations.
