(b) No person willfully shall park or leave standing a vehicle, whether attended or unattended, upon any highway or street right of way in the Town of Yarmouth, in such manner that it might interfere with or obstruct snow removal or winter maintenance operations on such highway or street;

(c) No person shall park upon any highway or street right of way in the Town of Yarmouth during the period from one hour after a snow storm has commenced to two hours after such snow storm has stopped.

2. The provision of these regulations does not apply to a Police or a Fire Department vehicle or an Ambulance when the vehicle or an Ambulance is being used in an emergency.

3. Any person who violates or fails to observe or comply with any of the provisions of these regulations shall be guilty of an offence and shall be liable to the penalty prescribed by Section 293 of the Motor Vehicle Act.
