HRM Reinstates Overnight On-Street Winter Parking Ban
(Thursday, December 11, 2008) HRM will reinstate the overnight on-street winter parking ban as of 1:00AM, Monday, December 15, 2008. The overnight parking ban is scheduled to be lifted on March 30, 2009. The winter parking ban prohibits vehicles from being parked on street from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. daily.
In addition to the overnight winter parking restrictions, all vehicle owners in Nova Scotia are subject to Section 139 of the Motor Vehicle Act, which states that a vehicle may not be left on a street or road in such a manner that it might interfere with, or obstruct, snow removal or winter maintenance (salting) operations.
Having streets free and clear of parked vehicles during snow storms makes for safe, efficient and cost-effective snow removal operations and facilitates better mobility by emergency response agencies.
The cooperation of motorists is appreciated.
