Overnight parking ban continues

Friday, Jan.

3,, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – Please be advised the HRM overnight winter parking ban will continue to be enforced on Saturday, Jan. 4 from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.

Vehicles must be off HRM streets during these hours to accommodate effective clearing operations. 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 they are parked in a manner that interferes with snow clearing.

Fifteen centimetres of snow has fallen on the Halifax area, with another 15 cm possible through today. Wind gusts are causing blowing snow with drifting and white out conditions.

As snow tapers through this evening, Municipal Operations will ramp-up with heavy equipment to begin further street clean-up.

As always, motorists, pedestrians, and operators are urged to travel with caution.

The overnight winter parking ban is in effect until March 31, 2014. However, it will only be enforced during declared snow and ice events, such as the ongoing storm.

The easiest way to be prepared when snow is coming is to sign up for CityWatch notifications of parking bans. Fill out a registration form at www.halifax.ca/snow/parkingban, email contacthrm@halifax.ca or call 311. Subscribers will receive timely alerts by phone, email, and/or text message when the ban is in effect and again when it is lifted. Residents who received these notifications last winter will continue to receive the service this year. Standard text messaging rates apply.

For more information on snow clearing operations and municipal service standards please visit www.halifax.ca/snow.
