Impeding/Blocking Driveway Can Get Owner A Ticket

In the past 18 months, I have sent out two documents to residents about the municipal parking bylaw that prohibits vehicles from encroaching or blocking driveways. The city’s parking bylaw ensures that all vehicles must be parked in a manner that clears any driveway approach by 45 cm or 18 inches. Vehicles that are parked within 45cm of a driveway approach can be ticketed. Any vehicle physically blocking a driveway can be towed at the owners expense which could be hundreds of dollars.

I wish to advise residents that tickets are being issued. Please be considerate of your neighbours.
