Re: [Weather] Special weather statements ON, NB, NS, NL

nope...you'll get fined if you do it.

It's technically illegal to park on the lawn of every municipality I've ever lived in. I have *never* seen a fine levied for it.

Good luck!

The bylaw here says you can park 15 cars on your front lawn...as long as they are all currently plated. The GT-R out back has a current plate and sticker and the plate renewal is soon.

The MTO sent a letter and said "No sticker for you" as it doesn't have liability on it right now. Some new government cross reference program with the insurance companies.

The end of my driveway got plowed in at 7am. The neighbour came over without me asking and snowblowed it out. How nice.

Generally speaking, you'll only get a ticket if someone complains to the city. Bylaw officers dont go looking for stuff like that.

Hell, there's no on-street parking between 3am and 5am around here yet people still do it and in the 12 years I've lived on this road I've only seen them ticketed twice.

The bylaw here prohibits parking on one's lawn. However, as many people in Fort Erie have narrow single-car driveways and on-street parking is banned in the winter, parking enforcement outright recommends that people park on their front lawn despite its illegality and will not enforce the bylaw when someone like jeffer complains. Lots of people also built little gravel or asphalt pads for their cars on the city-owned boulevard. Again, the town doesn't care and if anyone complains, they're ignored.

People do that here, too. It's one of the perks of living in a community that isn't a Potemkin village.

Ok, I had to Google that as I thought it had something to do with the dope. I suspect it was in reference to little cookie cutter neighborhoods in the burbs of London full of uptight NIMBY residents. »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potemkin_village

while not a lot of people park cars on their lawns here anyway, the city does fine them...my buddy is a commissionaire and told me they do ticket those offences, when they see them, which isn't very often...the ticket for parking on the boulevard is far more common, as is overnight parking on the street.

Have a look at the streets around the CNE when its running, lawn parking gone wild.

At the same time when enterprising kids tried this during the Canadian Open, they cracked down. Can't have cars spoiling tony Kingsway.

Then they let them go ahead. I have family who live on the street what got ticketed. And it wasn't in the Kingsway area. It was north of that, on Princess Margaret, and around Richview.
