New Traffic & Parking By-law takes effect June 1st, 2018
The new Traffic and Parking By-law (No. 2017-301), and corresponding set fines approved by the Ontario Court of Justice, will take effect on June 1, 2018. The current by-law (No. 2013-530), will be repealed and replaced as per the recommendations in the Traffic and Parking By-law Update 2017 report, approved by City Council on September 13, 2017.
A significant change in the new by-law relates to the current 3-Hour Parking Rule, as it applies to weekends and statutory holidays. Under the current by-law, on weekends and statutory holidays, motorists are only allowed to park for three consecutive hours (between 7 am and 7 pm), on streets where there are no parking limit signs. As of June 1, 2018, on weekends and statutory holidays, motorists will now be allowed to park for up to six consecutive hours (between 7 am and 7 pm) on streets where there are no parking limit signs.
