Watch the forecast: winter parking restrictions begin

December 1, 2009

Ottawa residents who park on the street will need to keep a close eye on the forecast.

The city’s winter overnight parking regulations are now in effect.

That means, unless vehicle owners have a municipal on-street parking permit, street parking is now prohibited between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. whenever Environment Canada forecasts a snowfall of seven centimetres or more. That will allow the city’s snow-clearing crews to plough the streets.
