Winter Parking

From the City of Peterborough

To assist snow clearing operations, winter parking restrictions are now in effect in the City of Peterborough.

To avoid tickets and/or your vehicle being towed, observe the following:

  • From December 1st to April 1st, parking is prohibited on all City streets from 2:00 a.m. – 6:00 a.m. This allows better snow clearing of city streets and at a lower cost because equipment will not have to return to clear areas where vehicles were parked. The fine for a violation is $15.
  • During a snowstorm, when snow-clearing operations are underway, no stopping of a vehicle is permitted on any city street. clearing operations typically take place between midnight and 8 a.m. The fine is $50 for this violation and your vehicle will be towed. All vehicles will be towed to Morrow Park and must be claimed the following day. After 24hrs all unclaimed vehicles will be towed to an impound yard at the owners expense.

Remember there is no parking any time of the year on city streets for longer than 3 hours, except where a sign indicates otherwise.
