We often feel we own the space in front of our home and get annoyed when someone else parks there. Streets are a shared resource that all Edmontonians have access to.

That means everyone has the right to park on City-owned streets, even if it’s right in front of your house. People can park on your side of the street even if they live on the other side, down the block, or on the other side of Edmonton!

Please report abandoned vehicles only if you believe the vehicle had been left and truly abandoned, as this should not be used to settle neighbour disputes. Unfortunately, there are citizens who use this as a tool to file a complaint against their neighbours and falsely report a vehicle as abandoned, knowing full well that it is not abandoned.
