HRM’s Overnight Winter Parking Ban In Effect


Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012 – HRM is advising residents that the overnight winter parking ban will be in effect starting tonight from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m. and will remain in effect until further notice. Tonight's forecast calls for rain changing to freezing rain, then snow around midnight - up to six centimentres by morning. This includes an advisory for flash freezing with rapid temperature drop.


The weather and snow clearing operations will dictate how long the overnight ban will remain in effect. HRM will notify residents when it has been lifted through Public Service Announcements,, 490-4000 and you can follow us on Twitter “@hfxgov”.


Provincial legislation (Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act) provides that people remove their vehicles from the streets, day or night, in the event of a snow or ice event. Vehicles obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance operations can be removed at the owner’s cost, regardless of time or date.


HRM requests that residents remove any street obstructions whenever possible during snow clearing operations. Items such as basketball nets and organic green carts hinder proper snow clearing and can result in damage to property and equipment.


HRM thanks you for your cooperation.
