WINNIPEG — Avoid a ticket and a tow by not parking on a snow route this winter.

The city’s annual snow route parking ban begins Friday, December 1 at 2 a.m., prohibiting vehicles from parking on such routes daily from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m. until March 1.

The Winnipeg Parking Authority will also begin mailing out tickets this season in addition to placing them on the windshield of a vehicle. The city says the mailers will help the WPA cover more area in a faster amount of time to allow public works crews to clean streets more efficiently.


Snow routes are a top priority for snow clearing to ensure that emergency vehicles can navigate quickly and safely around the city.

The cost of a ticket for parking on a snow route is $100, or $50 if paid early.
