Frequently Asked Questions

Why did I get a parking ticket?

Parking tickets are issued for a variety of reasons, expired meters, too far from a curb, too close to an intersection, sidewalk, fire hydrant, etc. Tickets are issued either by random by-law patrol or in response to a complaint. Once an officer has begun writing a ticket, it can not be canceled.

 

I received a By-Law violation notice, what does this mean?

A violation notice is a written notice of an infraction involving you or your property. There is a time frame indicated on your notice to have the infraction resolved. If you have further concerns, please contact a By-Law Officer for clarification.

 

May I stop my Vehicle in a bus stop?

NO! You can not stop in any place designated for buses, school buses, fire lanes, or No Stopping areas. This includes even quickly dropping off or picking up passengers/parcels.

 

Can I park my unregistered Vehicle in my back yard?

Unregistered vehicles are considered derelict, and not permitted under the by-law. All unregistered vehicles parking on private property must obtain a derelict vehicle permit from City Hall. See the NUISANCE BY-LAW NO. 5806/81/90 Page 7 for more information regarding derelict permits. 

 

How do I make a by-Law complaint?
