Winter Parking Regulations

City of Kitchener winter parking regulations start tomorrow December 1st.  Here's the announcment the City issued today:  [from the website]

Kitchener residents are reminded that winter parking regulations are in effect Dec. 1 through March 31 every year, and that no parking is permitted on streets from 2:30 until 6 a.m.

During this time, the city’s tag-and-tow bylaw will come into effect. The tag-and-tow bylaw prohibits parking on city streets anytime a Snow Event is declared. A Snow Event is declared when a significant snowfall is predicted based on credible weather forecasts.

When a Snow Event has been declared, the decision will be communicated in several ways including the city’s website – – by e-mail to residents who sign up to receive the city’s snow-event advisories, and by alerting local media.

During Snow Events, bylaw staff will ticket vehicles parked on local streets and may tow vehicles if they interfere with snow removal.  The amount of the ticket for vehicles parked on the street during a Snow Event is $80. Vehicles that are towed will be relocated to another area in close proximity when it is safe and practical to do so. However, it may be necessary for some vehicles to be impounded at the owner’s expense.

If you suspect your vehicle has been towed, please call 519-741-2345.
