HRM to enforce parking ban Saturday morning

By Caitlin Snow Feb 2, 2024 | 9:56 AM

Remember to keep your vehicle off the street overnight Friday, with more snow on the way.

Environment Canada is calling for 5 to 10 cm Friday night and Saturday morning.

HRM says if your vehicle is left on the street between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m., February 3rd, you are at risk of being towed.

Planters, lawn decorations and any other portable objects near the sidewalk should be removed before the winter. Any permanent structures or objects too big to move should be marked with a reflector that will be visible above the snow to help crews identify obstacles.

Vehicles obstructing a driveway or sidewalk are prone to damage and become dangerous for crews. Such obstacles prevent crews from clearing the sidewalks properly, which can quickly become an accessibility issue for pedestrians, seniors, people with mobility issues and parents pushing strollers.
