Overnight parking ban eases this weekend

Effective tonight, Londoners can park personal vehicles on city streets overnight without registering for an overnight parking pass. Overnight parking is allowed on most city streets. Parking signage will indicate where there are restrictions.

This eases the restriction of the Consolidated Traffic & Parking By-law, that requires drivers to use an overnight parking pass between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. from November 1 to April 30.

The overnight by-law exemption does not apply to commercial motor vehicles, mobile homes, or trailers, as they have their own regulations.

The by-law also stipulates that no vehicles are permitted to park on city streets for longer than 18 hours at a time.

In some cases, overnight parking is restricted – in front of fire hydrants, on boulevards, front lawns, or streets identified by signs as being enforced. Full details about where overnight parking is not allowed can be found in Schedule 2 of the by-law.

Overnight parking passes will be required again beginning November 1, 2021.
