In 2012, Sarnia City Council approved a pilot project, lifting the prohibition on parking on City Streets between 2:00 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. for automobiles and motorcycles during summer months.
The eased restriction will only be in effect between May 1 and October 31 and does not apply to commercial motor vehicles, mobile homes or trailers. The traffic and parking by-law also stipulates that no vehicles will be permitted to park on City streets for longer than 12 hours at a time. A violation of this by-law is subject to a fine of $25.00.
Vehicles parked on the street overnight must comply with all of the applicable requirements of the City’s Parking By-Law (i.e., parked facing proper direction, not parked too close to intersections, not parked in front of fire hydrants, etc.).
