Avoid the Parking Ticket Blues – Park Responsibly
September 12, 2012
As another school year gets underway, the City of Edmonton is reminding students and parents to park responsibly and obey all parking signs. Parking enforcement officers will conduct a zero-tolerance parking enforcement campaign beginning on Wednesday, September 12, 2012.
Parking enforcement officers will look for cars parked illegally in residential neighbourhoods, bus zones and emergency access routes around post-secondary institutions and grade schools.
The zero-tolerance parking enforcement campaign encourages post-secondary students and parents to park legally around schools. Cars will be ticketed and towed without warning. Owners could face fines starting at $50, plus any towing and impound fees.
Parking illegally around elementary schools creates safety concerns for children/students. Vehicles parked too close to crosswalks, intersections and other restricted zones cause obstructions to sight lines. Parents may have to park a bit further away and walk their children to the front doors in order to park legally and maintain safety for all.
The zero-tolerance parking enforcement campaign will run for 3 weeks.
