Montreal city council is planning to vote April 15 on whether or not to increase parking ticket fines to $78 from $62.
This comes as the city’s annual seasonal parking restrictions come into effect on Monday to allow for maintenance and road cleaning.
These restrictions will last until mid-November or Dec. 1, depending on the borough. This includes reserved spots for motorcycles.
