no parking fire lane Originally uploaded by shamandalie

Watch where you park these days. Parking somewhere you shouldn’t can cost you double, sometimes even TRIPLE what you used to pay.

That’s right. The Winnipeg City Counsil has approved a plan to double, and in one case even TRIPLE the fine for a parking offense.

Counsil has also adopted a proposal, which will raise all city-owned parking lot daily maximum rates to $10-$12. Monthly rates will also be raised.
