Parking Bans

A parking ban may be called any time during the winter months when it is necessary for the safe and efficient removal or movement of snow or ice. 

There are two types of Parking bans in the City of Saint John:
1.    North, East, West (NEW)
2.    South Central Peninsula (SCP)

Once a parking ban has been declared, no person shall park a vehicle on the streets of Saint John where the parking ban is declared between the hours of 11:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m. (South Central Peninsula) and 12:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m. (North, East and West) of the day on which the ban has been declared. Any vehicles remaining on a street when the parking ban is in effect will be ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s risk and expense.

Temporary parking bans allow plow crews to push snow back to the curb or remove snow in it entirety on all streets to maintain access through all streets. This provides maximum street width for the purpose safe vehicular travel and storage for subsequent snow storm events. 

Public notification will be provided no later than 3:45 p.m. the day of the ban, and will be done through the following:
