MEDIA RELEASE: Town of Caledon lifts winter parking ban

The Town of Caledon has lifted the winter parking ban, effective 3:00 p.m. Friday, November 16, 2018.  Residents are reminded, however, that even when there is no ban in place, vehicles may still be ticketed and/or towed if they interfere with normal snow removal operations.

As well, residents are kindly requested to place their garbage/recycling/composting bins at the end of their driveways or property.  Placing bins on the road can interfere with safe snow plow operations. Also, we would like to remind residents not to push snow onto the road when clearing driveways.

About Winter Parking Restrictions

The purpose of a winter parking ban is to keep roads free of parked vehicles so that crews can quickly and safely clear snow. The Town would typically issue a parking ban if Environment Canada forecasts either a snowfall of 7 cm or greater or dangerous ice conditions.

During a 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 that are 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.
