Ottawa parking enforcement resumes June 29

OTTAWA – Get your excuses ready, city on-street parking enforcement resumes June 29.

Starting Monday, June 29, the city will resume the enforcement of parking in excess of posted time limits, including 15-minute, one-hour, two-hour, three-hour and six-hour zones.

“Initially, parking control officers will issue warning notices to vehicles that are parked longer than the posted time limit,” city staff released in a statement yesterday (June 16). “Officers will begin to issue tickets on Monday, July 6.”

Until further notice, parking control officers will not enforce overtime parking on streets without signs.

Parking enforcement ensures safety, traffic flow, emergency vehicle access and parking space availability as services begin to reopen and normal traffic patterns resume.

All other parking restrictions remain in effect, including no-stopping zones, no-parking zones, fire routes, accessible parking spaces and rules around sidewalks, driveways and fire hydrants. Parking restrictions continue to be enforced in areas with Pay and Display machines.
