The Town of Caledon has issued a Winter Parking Ban to take effect at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, November 15, 2018.
About Winter Parking Bans
The purpose of the ban is to keep roads free of parked vehicles so that crews can quickly and safely clear snow.
Following a forecast by Environment Canada for a snowfall of 7 cm or greater, or ice coverage, the Town may issue a Winter Parking Ban.
During a Winter Parking Ban:
· Vehicles may not be parked on roads in Caledon at any time.
· Any Overnight Parking Exemptions that have been granted will be cancelled.
· Parking Enforcement Officers may ticket and/or tow vehicles in violation of the ban.
· Vehicle owners are responsible for tickets and towing charges.
When roads are cleared and the weather improves the Town will lift the ban.
As a reminder, any vehicle that interferes with snow clearing operations before or after a winter parking ban may still be ticketed and/or towed.

New Equipment and a Pilot Study
The Town is prepared for the upcoming winter season with two new snow plows, and a snowplow tracking tool, which is currently in its testing phase. In addition, salt supply has been re-stocked and Road Operators have completed all “practice runs” with snow removal vehicles.
Residents are reminded to take precautions during the winter months. Please keep in mind:
· As crews clear roads and sidewalks, we ask for your patience and that you try to steer clear of plows.
· Being outdoors when temperatures are extremely low can be dangerous, even if for a couple of minutes. Black ice can also be found on sidewalks, and not just on road ways, so please walk carefully.
· During a winter parking ban or a snow or ice event, please do not park vehicle(s) on the road. This is to ensure road crews can clear all roads efficiently and effectively.
· As you clear snow from your driveway, please keep it on your property.
Sixty dedicated road operations staff will typically clear/maintain over 1,500 lane km of roads throughout the Town. That is almost the equivalent as driving from Caledon to Moncton, NB (1,577km).
