No parking on city streets starting at 9 pm
In a release, the city of St. Catharines is asking residents to remove parked vehicles from streets and keep them off until the ban is declared over.
Municipal Works Director Darrell Smith says “Vehicles parked on the street slow down and restrict plows, resulting in streets being inadequately cleared of snow and ice, reducing safety for everyone travelling in the city. We urge residents to not park on the road when we declare S’No Parking to ensure transportation routes can be cleared quickly for residents and emergency responders.”
Residents who do not remove their vehicles from the road during the S’No Parking ban will be subject to a $30 ticket and towing.
The city says free overnight parking is available at both the Ontario Street and Carlisle Street / Garden Park parking garages.
