TICKETING and TOWING of PARKED VEHICLES on residential streets during Residential Snow Parking Ban
Check the schedule below to find out when your street will be cleaned so you can move your vehicle. Residential plows occur only a few times over the winter as they are very costly. The City wants everyone to move their vehicles off residential streets so the streets are clean and passable.
- Tickets are $150.00 AND the City will tow the vehicle to a close-by street
I highly encourage you to KNOW YOUR ZONE and move your vehicle off the street when the street cleaning is occurring. Most of the Waverley West ward is quite densely populated and there are many vehicles that park on the street all the time.
- I know the Parking Authority will be actively patrolling in our neighbourhoods.
Residential Parking Ban in effect starting Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.
Motorists urged to park elsewhere when a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing; residents encouraged to Know Your Zone
Winnipeg, MB – Plowing of residential streets will begin Tuesday evening to improve the overall condition of residential streets. As a result, a Residential Parking Ban has been declared and will be in effect starting Tuesday, January 21 at 7 p.m.
Residents are urged to confirm their snow zone letters to determine when their residential street is scheduled for clearing.
You can find your snow zone with the Address Lookup Tool, by using the Know Your Zone app, or by contacting 311. Residents are encouraged to know their snow zone letter well in advance of the start of the residential plow and to make alternate parking arrangements if they park on the street.
Starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, residents in snow zones B, J, L, O, S, U, V will need to move their vehicles as plowing will be underway in those zones until 7 a.m. on Wednesday, January 22. Please refer to the entire schedule below for details about when snow zones will be cleared this week.

Missed residential streets
If a residential street was not cleared as scheduled, it will be cleared after plowing has been completed city-wide. Residents are advised to contact 311 following the completion of the residential plowing operation to report a missed street. Residents can also see crews’ progress by viewing our Snow Clearing Status Map.
Avoid a ticket and tow
When a residential street is scheduled for snow clearing, residents are urged to find an alternate place to park such as an off-street driveway or parking lot, or a nearby street that has already been cleared. This will help the plowing operation run smoothly and will prevent you from being ticketed and towed.
Vehicles parked in violation of the Residential Parking Ban may receive a $150 ticket ($112.50 if paid early) and may be towed to a nearby street that is not scheduled to be plowed or has already been cleared. If you believe your vehicle may have been towed due to the Residential Parking Ban, please contact 311 for assistance in locating it.
Think safety this winter
Approximately 300 pieces of heavy equipment will be used for this snow clearing operation; motorists are reminded to drive to conditions and to use extreme caution when driving near heavy equipment.
