Winter Parking Regulations for the 2021/2022 season take effect on December 1st.
Full details below, but here are the key points to remember:
➡️ No parking on the street between the hours of one o’clock in the morning and seven o’clock in the morning of the same day.
➡️ Don't park or leave a vehicle (attended or unattended) on the streets that might interfere with or obstruct snow removal or winter maintenance operations.
➡️ Don't park on any street during the period from one hour after a snow storm has begun to two hours after the storm has stopped.
WHEREAS, due to the congestion on the streets and highways in the Town of Yarmouth caused by vehicular and pedestrian traffic and the limitation of the free use of the streets liable to be caused by the presence of snow and ice thereon, I am of the opinion that special conditions exist and I do so declare.
THEREFORE, under the authority of Section 202 of Chapter 293 of the Revised Statutes of Nova Scotia, 1989, the Motor Vehicle Act, as Traffic Authority for the Town of Yarmouth, I make the following temporary regulations:
1. Notwithstanding that certain traffic signs have been erected in the Town of Yarmouth, prohibiting or permitting the parking or leaving standing of vehicles upon sections of highway during the hours stated thereon:
(a) No person shall park upon any highway or street right of way in the Town of Yarmouth between the hours of one o’clock in the morning and seven o’clock in the morning of the same day;
(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.
4. These regulations shall be in full force and effective from the 1st day of December 2021 A.D., until the 31st day of March 2022 A.D., both dates inclusive.
