No Parking means you may stop momentarily to drop off passengers, but you may not sit in your vehicle indefinitely and you must not leave your vehicle unattended.  No Parking requirements: no waiting allowed, stopping allowed for a moment to pick up or drop off passengers or to unload merchandise at curbside.

No Stopping means the halting of your vehicle is prohibited, even momentarily and even if occupied.  No Stopping requirements: no waiting allowed, no stopping (even for a moment) to pick up or drop off passengers or unloading of merchandise at curbside.

Curbs

Parked vehicles shall not overhang the curb, grassed areas or obstruct the boulevard in any way. Doing this can cause a dangerous problem for traffic.

If necessary, the vehicle may be parked parallel to the curb on the part of the driveway between the sidewalk and the road so long as it does not block the road or the sidewalk and is not on the grass or landscaped area.

Fire Routes

Fire Routes: no parking, no waiting allowed. Stopping momentarily, while remaining in your car, while actively loading or unloading packages or passengers is allowed.

Sidewalks

Vehicles parked in driveways shall not block a sidewalk. 

This is to ensure that vehicles don't pose a danger to those using the sidewalk by getting in the way of  strollers, wheelchairs and pedestrians.

School Zones and Areas

Dropping off and picking students up in school areas can cause a lot of extra traffic congestion. Illegally stopped or parked cars are a safety risk as they make it hard for other drivers to see pedestrians, particularly children, crossing the street. 

For these reasons, streets around our schools have "No Stopping" and "No Parking" signs installed, as applicable.

Please learn the difference between No Stopping and No Parking and help keep our school areas safe for children.

If you must drive your child to school:

  • Pre-arrange where you will drop off and pickup your child. Consider a nearby parking lot or area away from the school that is not within the restricted parking zone.

  • Please use "kiss and ride" areas if they are provided.
  • Be courteous to other children and their parents/guardians. Aggressive, hurried driving does not belong.
  • Carpool with other parents to reduce traffic flow - and save time and fuel, too.
  • Purchase weather-appropriate clothing and encourage your children to walk to school where possible.
  • Be patient and drive with caution at all times. Children are not good judges of a vehicle's speed. Young pedestrians or cyclists can be unpredictable and can divert off the sidewalk onto the road at any time.

On-Street Parking Regulation Change Request No Parking Sign

If you have concerns regarding existing parking restrictions or vehicles parking on both side of your residential street, you can request changes to parking regulations.

Making a Request 

Resident must fill out the On-Street Parking Request Form (PDF) and submit to transportation@caledon.ca. Once received, staff will review the request which may consist of:

  • A safety assessment
  • Parking supply
  • Appropriate use of road space to avoid impacting emergency vehicles, snow removal vehicles and all other road users.

After a Request is Made

  • Once a review has been completed, if the change requested has any negative impacts on any of the above, the requester will be advised by Town Staff and no changes will be made to the parking restriction.
  • Once a technical review has been completed, if the change requested does not have any negative impacts on any of the above, Town staff will develop a questionnaire for the requester to survey the residents on the affected street.
    • The requester must receive a minimum of 75% responses from the residents on the affected street, and at least 67% of those responses will need to be in support of the change. The requester is asked to submit the survey response to the Town of Caledon either in person to the attention of the Transportation Department or via email - transportation@caledon.ca.
    • The process ends if there is not enough responses and support.

Making a Final Decision

Once the questionnaire has been submitted to the Town, a staff report, recommending the change, will be submitted to Town Council for approval. The final decision regarding revisions to the parking regulation is made by Town Council.
