Snow Route Overnight Parking Ban commences

WINNIPEG - November 28, 2003 - The City's Snow Route Overnight Parking Ban will take effect at 00:01 a.m., December 1, 2003.

The ban, which will remain in effect until March 1, 2004, prohibits parking between 02:00 a.m. and 06:00 a.m. on all streets designated as Snow Routes. Snow Routes receive priority status for snow clearing operations and are identified by 'Snow Route' signs.

"It's very important that we have the ability to control ice and clear snow on these important routes, unimpeded by parked cars," says Jim Thomson, Director of Public Works. "Well-cleared roads allow proper traffic flow and ensure emergency vehicles can travel the city quickly and safely."

Residential streets, though not generally affected, could be subject to the ban if they are designated as Snow Routes. Thomson advises residents to check their street for Snow Route signs or if unsure to call the Public Works Department's customer services line at 311.

This parking ban is put into effect pursuant to the terms of By-Law No. 6288/93 which provides for the automatic implementation of the Snow Route Parking Ban annually from December 1 to March 1 on all streets designated as Snow Routes.
