The Halifax Regional Municipality will be enforcing the winter parking ban overnight.

It will be in effect in both zones (Zone 1 – Central and Zone 2 – Non-Central) between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 15.

Any vehicles left parked on city streets risk being ticketed.

In addition, vehicles can be towed, day or night, at any time of year, if they are interfering with snow-clearing operations under the province's Motor Vehicle Act.

Residents are asked to make sure vehicles aren't blocking sidewalks. Those hanging out of driveways or parked on the sidewalk risk being damaged by snow removal equipment and could also be ticketed.

Haligonians should move any planters, lawn decorations, sports equipment and other portable objects away from sidewalks. Mark any permanent structures or objects too big to move with reflectors that will stick out above the snow so crews can spot them.

The HRM is also reminding those heading out to shovel to not dump snow from your property onto the street or sidewalk.

"Think before you park this winter - it will help make the season a little easier on everyone," said the municipality.
