Consider yourself warned. Starting on Monday, London drivers will need to register their vehicles for overnight parking using the city’s overnight parking pass system.
The pass system is in its second year, but was warmly received as over 48,000 passes were issued between September 2016 and May of this year.
A maximum of 15 free passes may be issued per vehicle licence plate, valid on most city streets. Passes can be obtained online through the City’s website, by phone at 519-661-4537 or in person at the Parking Services Office on Dundas Street.
Between Nov. 1 and April 15, passes will not be issued more than 48 hours in advance to help mitigate weather concerns.
Over the winter months, overnight parking may be restricted to allow snow-clearing operations. At such times, when passes are revoked, pass holders will be notified via email.
“Drivers are reminded that all other parking restrictions remain in effect, including prohibited parking and stopping areas, fire routes and the requirement to remove all vehicles from the street during snow-clearing operations,” said Annette Drost, manager of municipal law enforcement services.
Overnight parking passes are required until Victoria Day, at which time the overnight parking restriction will be lifted.
