Residents who have on-street parking permits are being asked to delay moving their vehicles to the other side of the street for parking until Tuesday, April 15.
Traditionally, on-street parking takes place on one side of the street for six months of the year and then switches over to the other side of the street for the next six months. However, due to the heavy snow and ice accumulation, there has been a build up of ice between parked cars and the City of Toronto feels it is not safe or practical to switch sides until the ice and snow has melted. This change traditionally takes place on April 1.
It is expected that the road will be clear by April 15, allowing alternate parking rules to go into effect on this date.
Toronto Police Service will honour this delay and ticketing for this offence will not begin until April 16 at 9:00 am. However, where vehicles are parked in a hazardous manner, creating obstructions or hampering the free flow of traffic, tickets will be issued and the vehicles could be towed.
