HALIFAX – The overnight parking ban on the streets of the city will take effect again on Tuesday, December 15.
It will be enforced between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. during declared show and ice events and extended cleaning operations.

This year, the city is stepping up its parking enforcement around schools, hospitals, bus routes and areas that have been a problem for snow clearing equipment.
The city towed 87 cars last year that were in the way of snow clearing operations, something city spokesperson Jennifer Stairs says they’ll be stepping up this year.
“We’ll be out there looking for those vehicles early on this season,” Stairs said.
Officers will also ticket vehicles that interfere with sidewalk clearing. Vehicles that hang out of a driveway or are parked on the sidewalk are prone to damage and are obstacles for snow clearing crews.
The city also says that the overnight parking ban could be extended to longer than overnight depending on weather conditions and snow clearing operations.

Stairs told Global News Friday that last year the city enforced the overnight ban on 47 nights, which is more than 2 times the normal average for the previous three years. They issued about 12,300 tickets.
