The cities Annual Snow Route Parking Ban will come into effect on Sunday, December 1, 2013.

From December 1 to March 1 each and every year in Winnipeg the annual snow route parking ban is in effect. Vehicles may not park on designated snow routes between the hours of 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. This increases the banned parking an extra hour to 7 a.m. from 6 a.m. in previous years.

It is essential that these priority streets are kept clear of snow to ensure the fast, safe movement of emergency vehicles (ambulance, fire and police).

When you need emergency services, you want them to be able to get to you as quickly as possible. This is one of the reasons this parking ban is so important to everyone.

Vehicles parked in violation of the annual snow route parking ban will receive a ticket in the amount of $100 ($50 if paid early), and may be towed to the towing company’s compound.
