The City of Mississauga would like to remind drivers – when it snows, keep parked cars off residential streets to leave room for salters and plows to clear the way for emergency vehicles and residents.
Parked cars can block the way for equipment, which slows down snow clearing. Ideally, parked vehicles should stay off the street until clearing is complete – from 24 to 36 hours after snowfall ends, depending on the amount of snow accumulated.
To help keep parked cars off streets during snow clearing, the City also cancels temporary parking permits until snow clearing is done. On-street parking is not allowed from 2 to 6 a.m. at any time of the year. Vehicles parked illegally may be ticketed or towed.
