This means that no car can be parked on the city streets from 2:30 a.m. to 6 a.m. without exception.
However, when a snow event is declared, the exemptions will not prevent you from being marked and towed.

The city will declare a snow event when there is significant snowfall in the forecast to allow crews to clear the streets safely and efficiently.

If you leave your car on the street, you could get a fine of $ 80, and if the plows can’t access the street, a tow truck could pull your vehicle.

As the city seeks to clear 550 km of roads in 24 hours, it asks residents to drop their waste and recycling in the driveway.

The city works on the roads according to priority, with major arteries going first, followed by major collector roads and Grand River Transit roads before tackling snowfall on residential streets.

Homeowners should be aware that they must clear sidewalks of snow and ice within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall.

There are settlements officers who check to see if this is done, and if it is not, a warning will be issued. An officer will return for a second inspection 24 hours later, which could result in enforcement action.

Residents can also pick up free sand for sidewalks and icy driveways at select locations in Kitchener.
