MEDIA RELEASE: Town of Caledon Issues Winter Parking Ban

The Town of Caledon has issued a Winter Parking Ban to take effect at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 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.

 

Stay Up-To-Date

 

Winter Safety Reminders

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 winter maintenance 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).
