The Town of Caledon issues a winter parking and commonly lifts it the following day.

A ban is meant to keep roads free of parked vehicles so that crews can quickly and safely clear snow, according to a Town of Caledon news release.

Following a forecast by Environment Canada for a snowfall of seven centimetres or greater, or ice coverage, the Town may issue a winter parking ban.

During a winter parking 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 two vehicles in violation of the ban and vehicle owners are responsible for tickets and towing charges.

When roads are cleared and the weather improves, the Town will lift the ban.

The Town of Caledon reminds any vehicle that interferes with snow clearing operations before or after a winter parking ban may still be ticketed or towed.

When the Town lifts a ban, vehicles may still be ticketed and towed if they interfere with normal snow removal operations.

Residents are requested to place their garbage, recycling, composting bins at the end of their driveways or property.
