Caledon lifts Winter Parking Ban and Significant Weather Event Declaration

Snow plow

February 19 - The Town of Caledon will lift the winter parking ban as of noon Friday, February 19, 2021.

The significant weather event warning has been lifted effective immediately in regard to reduced visibility caused by heavy snow for 3 hours or more and accumulation of 15 cm of snow within a 12 hour period.

Residents and visitors are reminded that vehicles may still be ticketed and/or towed if they interfere with normal snow removal operations. Even when there is no warning in place use caution when using roads and sidewalks.

As well, residents are kindly requested to place their garbage/recycling/composting bins at the end of their driveways or property. Placing bins on the road can interfere with safe snowplow operations. Also, we would like to remind residents not to push snow onto the road when clearing their driveways.

About Winter Parking Restrictions

The purpose of a winter parking ban is to keep roads free of parked vehicles so that crews can quickly and safely clear snow. The Town would typically issue a parking ban if Environment Canada forecasts either a snowfall of 7 cm or greater or dangerous ice conditions.

During a ban, vehicles may not be parked on roads in Caledon at any time. Any Overnight Parking Exemptions that have been granted will be cancelled. Parking Enforcement Officers may ticket and/or tow vehicles that are in violation of the ban. Vehicle owners are responsible for tickets and towing charges. When roads are cleared and the weather improves the Town will lift the ban.
