Private Parking Lot Sign Standards

Parking enforcement officers can only write tickets where signs are posted correctly and are consistent the City's standard for parking signs.

Nuisance Vehicle Parked on Private Property

Parking Enforcement officers will not remove derelict, wrecked or dismantled vehicles. Vehicles that have smashed-out windows or multiple flat tires are not considered parked or abandoned. These vehicles are considered a nuisance. Removal is the responsibility of the property owner. Nuisance complaints can be referred to General Bylaw Enforcement by calling 311.

Private Parking Lot Signs

Parking lot signs must be:

  • Large and high enough to be visible and safe for drivers
  • Worded correctly
  • Clear of advertising
  • Designed with colour combinations that are visible and easy to read
  • Posted at all entrances to a property, and where necessary declare specific parking restrictions within the property boundaries

The City of Edmonton Parking Enforcement Services will NOT ticket and tow vehicles that are parked in areas where signs:

  • Provide the name of a specific towing company (i.e. "ACB Towing Company")
  • List the incorrect fine amount

Because fines do change periodically, it is best not to put any fine amount on your parking signs.
