The municipal overnight winter parking ban is in effect every year from Dec. 15 to Mar. 31. It will be enforced only during declared weather events and ongoing clearing operations. When enforced, the parking ban is in effect from 1 a.m. until 6 a.m. throughout the Regional Centre of the municipality.
Check the Service Updates page for the status of the parking ban.
The easiest way to stay informed is to register for notifications.**
PLEASE NOTE: Residents are advised not to rely solely on these notifications for parking ban information. For updates on the status of the parking ban visit halifax.ca, follow @hfxgov on Twitter, or call 311.
Regardless of the status of an overnight winter parking ban, or whether you have received a notification, vehicles can be towed any time during the day or night, any day of the year, if they are interfering with snow-clearing operations, as per Section 139 of the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act.
**The registration page for notifications is not compatible with Chrome or Safari web browsers and is not accessible through your smartphone. Please sign in on a desktop computer using either Internet Explorer or FireFox as your web browser. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
Subscribers will receive phone, email and/or text alerts when the overnight parking ban will be enforced. Residents have the option to provide up to two phone numbers and up to two email addresses, or a combination of both. Regular text messaging rates will apply.
For those who signed up last season, there is no need to sign up again, unless your personal information has changed.
