​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​On-street parking regulations help ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. “No Parking” and “No Stopping” zones on City streets provide visibility of pedestrians and other vehicles, emergency vehicle access and sufficient road width f​or safe ​vehicle passage.

​How to Propose a Change to the Current Parking Regulations

​Traffic Services will be notified of the request and a parking study will be conducted on the recommended street. The street and traffic statistics will be examined to determine if the current parking regulations should be changed. If a safety concern is identified as a result of vehicles parked on the street, parking restrictions will be implemented. Questionnaires may be sent out to residents of the street asking for their comments on the issue. The study may take up to 30 days to complete.

A new no-parking sign may be justified if:

  • Parking on the street is frequent
  • The location is close to an intersection or in the bend of a road
  • Location is beside a school or park
