Since parking rules change from road to road and place to place, always watch for and obey signs that say you may not stop or limit stopping, standing or parking. Be aware that not all parking by-laws are posted on signs.parking

Here are some basic parking rules:

  • Never park on the travelled part of a road. Drive off the road onto the shoulder if you must stop for some reason.
  • Never park on a curve, hill or anywhere you do not have a clear view for at least 125 metres in both directions.
  • Do not park where you will block a vehicle already parked or where you will block a sidewalk, crosswalk, pedestrian crossing or road entrance.
  • Do not park within three metres of a fire hydrant, on or within 100 metres of a bridge or within six metres of a public entrance to a hotel, theatre or public hall when it is open to the public.
  • Do not park within nine metres of an intersection or within 15 metres if it is controlled by traffic lights.
  • Do not park within 15 metres of the nearest rail of a level railway crossing.
  • Do not park where you will get in the way of traffic or snow clearing.
  • Never open the door of your parked vehicle without first making sure that you will not endanger any other person or vehicle or interfere with traffic. When you must open a door next to traffic, keep it open only long enough to load or unload passengers.

After parking your vehicle, always turn off the ignition and the lights, remove the key and lock the door to deter theft. Do not leave children or animals in the vehicle.

Before moving from a parked position, always signal and check for traffic, pulling out only when it is safe to do so.
